Mobile Notary vs. Notary Public in Oklahoma City
One question many people often ask Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers and Private Investigators is, “What is the difference between a notary public and a mobile notary?” In essence, they are both commissioned to notarize documents. The term “mobile notary” tends to refer to precisely what the title implies: he/she is the one who is willing to be mobile and travel to other individuals for their document signings. Any notary public can work only from an office and can travel to meet with clients or may do both.
The professional at Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers and Private Investigators takes great pride in his/her/their chosen profession. Our mobile notaries work very diligently and will accurately take care of your needs at a price you can afford. Please contact the prestigious notary public OKC division of Oklahoma Judicial Process Servers whenever you or anyone you know is in need of the best possible service!
Mobile Notary Fees
Oklahoma law dictates that a notary public in Oklahoma City may not charge more than $5.00 per signature for standard notary signings. In essence, if a person comes to them and asks to have something notarized, then they cannot raise the price beyond the set $5.00 per time the person signs. However, if he/she goes to someone’s house, over to a bank, etc., then he/she may charge whatever price he/she/they desire(s).
This does not necessarily mean that a client will pay the price they have requested, so sometimes they and client have to negotiate. Likewise, someone serving as a mobile notary is performing a professional job and should be paid fairly, especially given the ever-increasingly expensive costs of gasoline. It is important to keep in mind that they often have to cover such things as the cost of the fuel for their vehicles, wear and tear on their cars, their commission fees, notary stamps and ink, notary books, liability insurance, advertising, cell phone costs, Internet, stamps and recording books, as well as their valuable time.
What Kinds of Documents Can a Mobile Notary and a Notary Public City Notarize?
They can legally notarize a wide array of documents in their capacities. Some of these documents include, but are certainly not limited to, the following:
- Last Will & Testament Forms
- Car/Boat/Truck Titles
- Letters Which Require Notarization
- Affidavits of Common Law Marriage
- Durable & Medical Powers of Attorney
- Living Wills
- Home Mortgage Loans/Home Refinancing Packages
- Powers of Attorney
- Much More!
What are Some Examples of Legal Documents that they Cannot Legally Notarize for Anyone?
- They May Not Notarize His/Her/Their Own Signature.
- Birth Certificates
- University Degrees
- Any Document the Signer Signed Prior to Arrival with the Document/Out of the Presence of the Notary Public in Oklahoma City
- Any Document the Signer Brings But When the Signer Fails to Have a Photo ID or is Not Personally Known to them
- Any legal Document Whereby the Notary Public Would Not be an Impartial Witness
They are not affirming that they believe or approve of what is written by the signer. Indeed, the document can be in a completely different language, and the official can still notarize the signature. The expert is only notarizing the signature of the signer itself, not the contents of the document.
