DUTIES OF A NOTARY PUBLIC

For your own protection you as a duly appointed Notary Public should become familiar with the laws governing a Notary Public, and thoroughly familiar with paper you authenticate.

Before any step is taken, be sure the parties concerned thoroughly understand the contents of the documents they are acknowledging or executing. This should be understood to your satisfaction before you attest to their signature(s) which is always affixed in your presence.

NEVER be a party to a false affidavit. This clearly falls under the so-called felony amendment and is why we place so much emphasis upon this point. The responsibility lies solely upon the Notary Public. In certifying officially as true what he knows is false, he violates his duty as a state Official, commits a crime and makes himself liable for damages, fines and/or imprisonment.

Too much emphasis cannot be placed upon having the individual making the oath or acknowledgement in your presence, dating the document the date it is signed and affixing the seal and expiration date of your commission properly.

Be certain there are no blank spaces that can be filled in after you notarize a document. If the document requires two signatures, never attest to ONE, leaving blank for another signature to be affixed.

A widely ignored requirement imposed upon a Notary Public is that requiring every Notary Public to keep a fair register of all his official acts and/or payment of his legal fees and to give a certified copy therefrom when required.

IN NO INSTANCE CAN A NOTARY PUBLIC ACT IN THE CAPACITY OF AN ATTORNEY. HE HAS NO AUTHORITY TO COMPLETE LEGAL DOCUMENTS. HE ONLY CERTIFIES THAT THE PERSON WHO ACTUALLY DOES SIGN THE DOCUMENT SIGNS THE DOCUMENT IN HIS PRESENCE. AND THAT THE CONTENTS ARE KNOWN TO AND UNDERSTOOD BY THE PERSON WHOSE SIGNATURE HE IS AFFIRMING.

Knowledge of the extent to which a Notary Public may perform his duties, and the careful carrying out of the prescribed functions of the Notary Public is of utmost importance.

Certifications

Notary Public Commissions:                                                                                                A notary public is a public official whose powers and duties are defined by statute. It is a relatively simple matter to become a notary public, but the office has important responsibilities, limitations and liability potential which should be fully realized.

QUALIFICATIONS:A notary must be at least 18 years of age and be a resident of, or maintain a principal place of business in, the county from which he/she is elected. Tenn. Code Ann. 8-16-101. A person with a principal place of business in a Tennessee County may be elected as notary even though that person's residence is in another state.  Tenn. Code Ann. 8-16-101. United States citizenship is not a requirement of Tenn. Code Ann. 8-16-101.

NOTARY PUBLIC AT LARGE:
As of July 1, 2004, notary publics will no longer be identified as Notary Publics At Large but will be identified as Notary Publics for the State of Tennessee.  Even though you would be elected as a Notary Public in Davidson County, your Notary certificate is good throughout the state.

BOND:After election by the county legislative body and before commencing duties or exercising powers, a notary must post bond by a surety company authorized to do business as a surety in Tennessee, in the amount of $10,000.  The bond is payable to the state and conditioned on the faithful performance of the duties of a notary public. The bond must be filed in the office of the county clerk in the county of election. Tenn. Code Ann. 8-16-104.  The county clerk may charge $1.50 for taking and recording the bond.  Tenn. Code Ann. 8-21-701.

OATH:
The notary must also take and subscribe to an oath before the county clerk or a deputy county clerk to support the constitutions of the State of Tennessee and the United States, and that the notary will, without favor or partiality, honestly, faithfully and diligently discharge the duties of a notary public. Tenn. Code Ann. 8-16-105.
After election by the county legislative body, before commencing duties or exercising powers, and after posting and filing your notary/surety bond, you must take and sign your oath in our office at 523 Mainstream Drive, Suite B, Nashville, TN.

OFFICIAL SEAL:
As of July 1, 2004, a notary must purchase an official rubber stamp seal that will imprint the seal of office in "..any color other than black or yellow, provided the color used to imprint the seal shall be clearly legible and appear as black when photocopied on a non-color copier." However, if the notary public was approved for their term of office prior to this date, they may continue to use their current notary seal until their term of office expires. Tenn. Code Ann. 8-16-206(a).
