Notary Public: Providing Invaluable Services!
The role of a Notary Public is to perform services for the legal, business, financial and real estate communities. These services include certifying and witnessing the authenticity of signatures, as well as verifying who the witnesses are. To acknowledge the authenticity of signatures, a Notary Public uses a special seal or stamp. A Notary Public may also administer oaths and take affidavits.
Notary Publics are also used by state governing bodies to help prevent fraud and theft within public matters. There are currently more than 225,000 notaries public in California.
Additionally, students who take real estate or business courses can benefit from adding Notary Public to their program. This is because almost every business has a need for a notary public at one time or another, and having one on staff is convenient. With this invaluable skill, you can become the go-to person for notary services.
