6 Surprising Things You Didn't Know a Notary Could Do for You
Beverly Hills, California, September 24, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Everybody knows that notaries provide a vital service, but many people don’t realize just how many important services a notary public can provide for you as an individual or as a business. Notaries are available at many locations in the community such as banks, courthouses and town or city halls. One of the easiest places to find notary services is at your local private mailbox, where you can consult with a notary public while accessing many of the other mail and business services on offer. Here we look at 6 surprising services you didn’t know a notary could provide for you.
Notarizing Loan Documents
If you’ve always rented a home or paid in cash for your car, you may not realize that notaries form an essential part of the process for completing the paperwork for new auto loans, new home loans and even refinancing. A notary public can notarize your signed loan paperwork to help you get approved for that new car or home and finalize the sale.
Mobile Notary Service
Having trouble finding a notary near you, or finding the time to visit one for yourself? Private mailboxes also offer mobile notary service, where a notary will come to you and can even visit during non-business hours and by appointment. Mobile notary services usually function within a local area, for example, a private mailbox in Beverly Hills will provide mobile notary services throughout Los Angeles County including Bel-Air, Pacific Palisades, Malibu, Century City, Los Angeles, Westwood, Santa Monica, and Culver City as well.
Notarizing Real Estate Documents
Choosing a new home or selling your home is an exciting, but also stressful process. It’s important to keep in mind that when buying or selling a property, making a short sale, or transferring a deed of trust, a notary public is able to notarize the paperwork involved quickly and efficiently.
Gaining Access to Medical Records
Medical records are private and confidential information, and not even you as the patient or a doctor who didn’t treat you can access the medical records without a request. These requests are documents that are usually provided by the medical institution but need to be notarized by a professional notary public before access to the documents can be granted.
Observe The Opening of Safety Deposit Boxes
Many people know that notaries can act as witnesses for various end of life legal documents such as wills, estate plans and advanced care directives, but in fact notaries can also witness the opening of safety deposit boxes in which a person’s belonging may have been stored, allowing the notary to take a stock of the box’s content and even coordinate the transfer of estate items. While notaries don’t have the same legal powers as lawyers, they still provide a significant and essential service in these legal documents and processes.
A notary of course can also provide a range of other useful services, mostly involving verification of a person’s identity including acknowledgements, jurats and oaths. Visit a private mailbox near you to access the services of your local notary public along with a number of other essential business services.
