TYPES OF NOTARIZATIONS

​Real Estate Closings

Living Trusts / Estate Planning Documents
Individual documents

Real Estate Closings

I assist with the last stage of the buying or selling process-- the signing and notarization of the documents. Whether it is a single real estate document such as a Deed, or a full set of mortgage  or refinance documents, I will travel to your location to assist. You usually have the option to choose your own notary instead of having the title company hire one for you. 

You may ask the title company or law firm to email me the file, which I print and bring to you for our appointment. If requested, I will also scan your signed file back to title via a secure file transfer method, and then ship the file to them via UPS or FedEx. 

If you're signing for a property that is located in one of the five witness states (Connecticut, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, South Carolina), the Deed will require that signers have one or two witnesses present at the signing. If it's a Florida property, the title company usually allows the notary to act as a witness.

EXAMPLES:
Buyer

Seller
Refinance
Commercial Loan
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)
Deed of Trust
New Construction
FHA/VA Loans... and more.

Living Trusts, Estate Planning

I can assist the attorney with notarizations of estate planning documents at their office or travel to your home, hospital, assisted living or rehab facility if you or a family member are homebound or unable to travel.  Several assisted living facilities in the Fairfax area have Emerald Mobile Notary Service on their list of preferred notaries. As a Certified Notary Trust Delivery Agent (CNTDA), I can present the living trust documents to the signer with or without the attorney's presence and collect signatures. 

Please call me at 
703-577-5484 If you would like to schedule a Power of Attorney signing for yourself or for a relative. This document requires more consideration in advance, and I can provide you with information and help with your questions.

If you'd like to create a customized Advance Healthcare Form, visit the Virginia State Bar Association's webpage for free downloadable forms.
And to create a free registry account on the Virginia Health Information (VHI) where you can store the form, please see my
Resources Page.  

Power of Attorney
Last Will & Testament
Living Trust
Living Will or Advance   Healthcare Directive
Certificate of Trust

Individual Documents

The more commonly notarized documents that we call "general notary work" are those not usually related to real estate or estate planning.
Just like the other documents though, having a well-trained notary is just as important. Examples of these are the Prenuptial Agreement, Travel Consent Form, or a Lease Agreement.

Separation Agreement
Travel Consent Form
Prenuptial Agreement
Adoption Agreement
Quitclaim Deed
Religious Exemption Form
Background Check Form

They serve as our front line of defense and the public is safer because of the job they do."     -Ken Salazar

Your Identification Requirements and Your Notary Appointment

Acceptable Forms of Identification
According to Virginia law, signers must personally appear before the notary and present a government-issued photo identification. The name on your ID must match the printed name on your document. The acceptable forms of identification in Virginia are as follows:
Mobile notary McLean,  Power of Attorney, notary services, notary near me, Falls Church, Herndon, Reston VA, 20151, 20170, 20171
1. United States passport
2. United States passport card
3. Certificate of United States citizenship
4. Certificate of naturalization
5. Foreign passport
6. United States green card with photograph
7. State-issued driver's license
8. State-issued identification card
9. United States military identification card

Coherent and Alert Signer

If you are arranging for a loved one or family member to sign a legal document, that person must be coherent, aware, and be able to communicate with the notary.  It is the notary's job to determine that the signer shows an understanding of the document and a willingness to sign. This is for the protection of the individual doing the signing. You can find more information regarding elderly signers on the Frequently Asked Questions page. 

When Can you Sign your Documents?

You should fill in all blank spaces in the document before the notary arrives, but please do not inital or sign your documents until you are in the presence of the notary. 

If you Have Questions about Your Documents

The notary public can give you general information but is unable to provide legal advice. Since a notary public is not duly trained or certified to practice law, we are unable to provide assistance in prescribing or determining the particular document a customer may need; we cannot select the type of notarization or certificate for a given document; and we cannot prepare a document or give advice on completing a document.

Notary Work and Goals

I didn't know mobile notary work existed until a few years ago, when I was the signer at my own refinance appointment in 2020, and a skilled notary signing agent handled our closing. Now, in 2023, as the owner of Emerald Mobile Notary Service, I'm dedicated to becoming one of the most trusted and skilled notaries in the area. I've taken specialized training in living trust documents from Laura Biewer/Bill Soroka and am now a CNTDA, a Certified Notary Trust Delivery Agent. I can assist the attorney by traveling to their client's location; I'll present a summary of each document, collect signatures, and notarize.  

In May 2023, I became certified to handle real estate closings using IPEN technology, or In-Person Electronic Notarization. At an IPEN signing, we use the SurfacePro Tablet and a stylus. This eliminates the need for printing large files. This is not only more efficient, but errors can now be avoided with the stroke of a button right at the signing table.

Having taken 150+ hours of Notary Stars training  (
www.notarystars.com) and completed the Notary2Pro Elite program  (www.notary2pro.com), I also assist title and escrow clients with real estate closings. It is my aim to provide the buyer or seller with a smooth signing experience. Because of my thorough preparation and attention to detail, I can give the signers accurate summaries of their real estate documents and I'll do my best to get their questions answered before leaving the signing table.
