What do I need to show as proof of ID for a notarization?

  • A valid unexpired, driver's license from any US state, Mexico, or Canada.
  • A valid unexpired, ID card issued by any state governmental office, such as a state employee ID.
  • A valid and signed US passport, or any signed and valid foreign passport stamped by US immigration.

What if I don’t have a valid form of ID? Can I still have my documents notarized?

Yes. We can use a credible witness or witnesses to verify your identity.

I have an out-of-state document or document not written in English. Can I have this notarized?

Yes, we are licensed to notarize any document within the state of California. It does not have to be a document written or from the state of California, nor does the notary have to be able to read the document in English. Your notary is not responsible for the document content, rather we ensure adherance to the acceptable notarial procedure.

I have already signed the document I need notarized. Is that okay?

Yes, if we are using an acknowledgment. If your document requires a jurat then it needs to be signed in front of the notary.

I need a note and a deed of trust but am not sure of the terms. Are you able to help me define the terms?

With certain limitations, we can advise as to what terms should be on a note or a deed. We are unable to advise as to the specifics of those terms. For example, if you are drawing up a note, we could not advise as to what interest rate to add to the note, or how long the term should be.

Will you have my deed recorded for me?

Yes, the deed will be recorded in the county in which the property mentioned exists.

How long is the process for drawing up a note and/or deed of trust?

There are several factors which can affect the length of time it takes to draw up the forms and/or have them recorded. The most important is how long it takes the respective parties to return them. Some parties live in the same city, or even the same residence. Often these can be signed and notarized very quickly. In other cases, where multiple parties are involved, and/or when parties are in different states, it may take a few days to get everything signed and notarized. Typically we can have the documents drawn up within 48 business hours of having everything on hand.
