Every now and again, whether you are creating an Ohio estate plan, buying or selling a house, filling out applications, or many other reasons, you might need to have a document notarized. A Notary Public performs the notarization in accordance with Ohio law and you are on your way.
Recently in September 2019, Ohio implemented Senate Bill 263, The Notary Public Modernization Act. The new law makes sweeping changes to Ohio law to include, among other things, how a person can become a Notary Public, how much they can charge, the proper language for their notarial certificates (the written statement that is signed and sealed at the end of the document that provides how the notarization was performed), and also new rules about becoming an “Online Notary Public.”
When having a document notarized, it is important to work with a Notary Public that is aware of the law and that has kept up to date on the recent changes in Ohio. All of our attorneys at AWK Legal are Notary Publics and are able to assist our clients with properly executing important documents throughout Ohio to include in Butler, Warren, and Hamilton counties.
