There are a multitude of documents that need to be notarized, including healthcare documents, Powers of Attorney, certain immigration documents, and wills. Sometimes, getting those documents verified can be challenging when using a traditional notary public. A mobile notary, or traveling notary, is a notary public who travels to meet clients in person. A notary is only able to witness the signing of documents and verify their authenticity. Here are 3 benefits to hiring a mobile notary:
Many mobile notaries don’t keep traditional business hours. They will make themselves available whenever you need a document signed, whether that is 9 p.m. or 9 a.m. This allows you to get documents notarized when you need them, even in emergency situations such as the drafting of a last-minute will.
This flexibility also is great under ordinary circumstances, such as cases where the parties who need to sign a document are unavailable during normal business hours. Having a mobile notary with more flexibility allows the notary to take the same document and go to multiple locations or to gather all required parties in one location at one time, making it more convenient for everyone.
No More Location Problems
Gathering all the necessary parties in one room to sign a document can be a logistical nightmare for a small office. With a mobile notary service, a suitably sized location can be found to fit everyone. Additionally, if the parties who need to sign documents are located far apart, a mutual location midway can be found if a mobile notary is involved, alleviating a large amount of travel for one party or another.
Having that ease of location change is also beneficial for documents involving older or ill people. A mobile notary can bring the documents to a hospital room, home, or nursing facility to be signed, and the ill person does not need to be moved.
Notaries in bigger cities are not as difficult to come by as they are in smaller towns. This lack of a qualified notary in a rural area can make getting important papers, such as property transfers, notarized. Mobile notaries can travel to these lesser populated areas, for a fee, making it easier and more convenient for people to complete legal paperwork.
