As a duty, the notary screens the signers of particularly sensitive agreements, including property deeds, wills, and powers of attorney, for their real identity, their willingness to sign, and their awareness of the documents’ purpose.
Being impartial is more of duty at any notary office. If they have a personal interest, they are obliged not to act in such situations. The general public trusts the notary’s screening not to be corrupted by self-interest.
Furthermore, the notary should also stay impartial and should never refuse to serve a person due to race, nationality, religion, politics, sexual orientation, or status in society.
Being official representatives of the state, the notaries certify the proper execution of many documents of private citizens (real estate, grant powers of attorney, establish a prenuptial agreement, or perform the multitude of other activities that enable our civil society to function).
The notaries act as a bridge of trust between strangers in business transactions and ensure that the critical document is authentic and signed impartially. This trust enables the sensitive documents of commerce and law to be exchanged between strangers with full confidence in their reliability.
