Can a notary sign an out of state Quit Claim Deed?

Can a notary sign an out of state Quit Claim Deed? 

One of the search terms we found in our blog stats was as follows:
Can a NY notary sign a Florida Quit Claim Deed?
 
Any notary in the United States can notarize a signature on a Quit Claim Deed from any state.  However, there is a catch!  Quit Claim Deeds have always used Acknowledgment verbiage / Acknowledgment wording in my experience.  Acknowledgment verbiage might differ from state to state.  So, the important point to remember is that the notary wording or notary verbiage should match the state where the document is going to be RECORDED.  If the document will be recorded in Florida, please make sure to use Florida notary verbiage.  If the document is going to be recorded in Texas, then use Texas notary verbiage. 
 
Another small point is that notary verbiage sometimes gets changed over time, so you need to make sure you are using 2011 or 2012 notary verbiage for the state where the document is to be recorded.  County recorders are the office that typically records deeds of various kinds.  They can sometimes be very picky.  Make sure your notary seals are very clear and not smudgy if you are submitting notarized documents to the county recorder!
 
Summary:
(1) Notary verbiage must match the state where the document is going to be recorded
(2) Any notary in the United States can notarize a Quit Claim Deed, Grant Deed, Warranty Deed, or any type of Deed for any state

How to complain about a notary public

How to make a complaint about a notary public
If a notary public in your state did something wrong, then you should complain about this notary.  But, who do you complain to about a particular notary public?  If it is a petty complaint, then you can keep it to yourself, or visit the BBB site. However, if there was a criminal act commited by the notary involving fraud, or some other serious issue, then please contact the notary division in your particular state.

Finding a notary for adoption papers

Notary for Adoption 

If you need a notary for an adoption, keep in mind that there might be many documents to be notarized.  However, the notary is not free to give advice about any of these documents. The notary public just makes sure that you signed the documents and notarizes your signature. That is it.  You (the signer) will be required to sign the notary journal once for each signature that is being notarized. If you need advice about the notary procedures for an adoption, please consult an attorney.  The notary’s purpose is only to notarize documents and NOT to give advice…

Please use 123notary.com to find a notary that can help you with your unique needs!
