What is Notarization?
Notarization is the process where a Notary certifies a document. This is usually done by attaching a notarial certificate to the document. The notarial certificate contains statements of fact or law in relation to the document being certified.
What is a signing agent?
A signing agent is a public notary who is expert in loan closing documents. A lender, title company, or escrow service may hire a signing agent to handle getting documents delivered, signed, or processed efficiently and on time.
Do I need an appointment?
Yes, although we are sometimes able to accommodate walk in clients it is preferable to book an appointment in advance in order to ensure a Notary will be available to see you. This also allows us to ensure we have all necessary documents in advance and that the appointment is as brief as possible for you.
Why do I need to bring proof of identity and proof of address?
One of the Notary’s fundamental duties is to properly identify his or her client. This requirement is laid down by our practice rules and legislation.
How much will it cost?
This will depend on the document being certified and exactly what the notary is required to do. Our notaries will be happy to discuss this with you prior to your appointment (please note it will often be necessary to see the document in advance in order to provide an accurate fee estimate).
Where do you provide your service?
If you prefer to come to our office during business hours, you are very welcome. We also provide mobile services at a higher cost so we can come to you at a place that is convenient for you. This can be your home or office, a restaurant, or even a nursing home, hospital or country (at an additional cost) this can also be arranged.

Why are documents notarized?
To put it simply, a Notary Public’s main purpose is to deter fraud. As an impartial witness, the Notary ensures that the signers of documents are who they say they are and not impostors. The Notary also makes sure that signers have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly.
What are your terms and policies?
