Documents NOT eligible for Notary at this location:

  • Real estate, i.e. estates, evictions, leases, loans including modifications, mortgages, and property transfers
  • Medical Authorizations
  • Power of Attorney
  • Tax-related documents

It is important to remember that a notary only verifies the signer’s identity and that the signature was made willingly. A notary does not legalize a document, prove a document to be true, or provide any legal assistance.
