What Does a Notary Public Do?
A notary public is a public official appointed by a state government to help deter fraud. Notary publics witness the signing of important documents and verify the identity of the signer(s), their willingness to sign the documents, and their awareness of the contents of the document or transaction.
These documents include:
- Powers of attorney
- Loan documents
