How much does a Notary cost?

Many people want to know how much a notary can charge, or what a notary costs?
It depends on whether you want to buy the notary public or rent them. (sorry for the bad joke)

Notary fees are set by the state they are commissioned in. As a general rule a notary can only practice in the state they have their commission in.

Notary fees are normally based on a rate per signature that is notarized (in most states) while in Florida, notary fees are based on a fee for each time the notary’s seal is affixed. Interesting!

Q. What does a mobile notary charge?

A. Mobile Notaries normally charge the state appointed Notary fee in addition to a travel charge and waiting fees if you keep them waiting. Find the best Mobile Notary companies on 123notary.com and look up by zip — but, don’t keep them waiting. Mobile Notaries often do loan signings which are paid based on a fixed negotiated rate. Hospital and Jail signings are normally more expensive than regular traveling notary jobs as more is involved and more can go wrong (especially if the guards aren’t in a good mood.)

Q. What is the maximum fee a notary can charge for notarizing an Acknowledgment or Acknowledged Signature in 2016 or 2017?
A. Please consult our find a notary page and then look up your state

Q. What is the maximum fee a notary can charge for notarizing a Jurat with accompanying Oath in 2016 or 2017?
A. Please consult our find a notary page and then look up your state

Q. What is the maximum charge for a notary in my state?
A. The exact fee depends on the notary act. There are several common types of Notary acts including Acknowledgments, Jurats, Oaths, Depositions, and some states allow witnessing. So please look your state up on our find a notary page.

Please note that there are differences for the Notary acts that each state allows. All states allow Acknowledgments and Jurats, while some states allow obscure Notary acts such as Marine Protests, Proofs of Execution, Safety Deposit Box Openings, etc.

Another great resource might be your state’s Secretary of State Notary Division, as they will have all legal information about the office of notary public in their site.
