A Notary Public is a public officer constituted by law to serve the public in non-contentious matters usually concerned with estates, deeds, powers-of-attorney, and foreign and international business. Notaries are public officers and they can act as a legal advisor in many areas like real-estate law, and business law. A Notary Public also deals with estate planning or making a will.
As we said, Notaries are public officers. As a public officer, a Notary can also Certify and draft documents which are considered “authentic”. If the original of a document is held by a Notary, the chances of it being lost go down considerably.
Notaries can also act as a mediator, which means that a Notary can also act as a neutral third party between two or more parties to resolve their dispute and reach a voluntary settlement.
Responsibilities of a Notary Public towards clients:
A Notary should build a trustworthy relationship with clients. A notary should be honest, frank and objective. A Notary should respect professional secrecy, and must provide the best service and information to their client. Before providing any services to the client a Notary should explain all the ins and outs of the job or service they are getting done (in case they are not able to understand it).
To make my clients happy and to provide the best service I always ensure that my client understand what they are signing, or getting into. For example, if a client wants to buy a house and they do not have the proper information, then it is my responsibility to first provide all the information to the client so that they feel comfortable and they feel free to make decisions without any doubts.
