Notarization of Documents – Affidavit, Power of Attorney, etc

October 19, 2015 | Published by

What is Notarization?

Notarization is the assurance by a Notary Public that a document is authentic, that its signature is genuine, and that its signer acted without duress or intimidation, and intended the terms of the document to be in full force and effect.

The central value of notarization lies in the Notary’s impartial screening of a signer for identity, willingness, and awareness. This screening detects and deters document fraud, and helps protect the personal rights and property of private citizens from forgers, identity thieves and exploiters of the vulnerable.

Every day the process of notarization prevents countless forged, coerced and incompetent signings that would otherwise overwhelm our court system and dissolve the network of trust allowing our civil society to function.

An affidavit and power of attorney are two of many types of documents that our Vancouver notary regularly drafts and notarizes here at Vancouver Downtown Notary:
