Notaries can notarize a wide range of documents, which typically include legal, financial, and personal documents. Common examples include wills, trusts, deeds, contracts, affidavits, and powers of attorney. Each state may have specific regulations about what documents a notary can or cannot notarize, so it’s important for clients to verify with their notary if a particular document falls within the scope of authorized services. Additionally, notaries ensure that the document is complete and does not contain any blank spaces that could be misused before it is signed.
