SB 1050 (Monning)

Notaries public: verification of identity: notice.



Current law authorizes a notary public to execute a certificate of acknowledgment or proof of execution of an instrument, or a jurat attached to a sworn affidavit. Current law requires a certificate of acknowledgment, proof of execution, and jurat to be in a specified form. This bill would require a legible notice to be included in those documents in an enclosed box, as specified, stating that the acknowledgment, proof of execution, or jurat verifies only the identity of the individual who signed the document to which the acknowledgment, proof of execution, or jurat is attached, and not the truthfulness, accuracy, or validity of the document.
