As of January 1st 2015 the California Secretary of State has included and additional block of text to any notary completed in California. Our Notaries will continue to provide the highest quality of attention to details and our notaries will add this additional information to any notaries we preform.
The new required wording is as follows:
“A Notary Public or other officer completing this certificate verifies only the identity of the individual who signed the document to which this certificate is attached, and not the truthfulness, accuracy, or validity of that document.”
Notaries who complete a notary in without the added wording the notary public will be breaking the law and subject to penalties. Clients may have to have the notary corrected by the notary public.
