Learning about the Notarial Acts

Learning about the Notarial Acts

The court, the banks, and other institutions require a document that needs to be notarized. Acknowledgment and jurat are essential to make an instrument more credible. It is a necessary determinative factor to check the authenticity of the document. And the person signing the papers presented. However, being the standard notarial acts, they still get confusing.

A jurat refers to the act where an individual appears before the notary public and presents an instrument. The signer of the document swears to the truthfulness of its content. An example is a Special Power of Attorney. The notary public must administer an oath or affirmation to the signer. The individual must appear personally and sign in the presence- of the notary public. And must be known to the latter through competent evidence of identity.

On the other hand, an acknowledgment ensures that the signatory is the same person named in the document. Acknowledges that, indeed, he is the one who executed the instrument as his free and voluntary act and deed. And if he acts in a particular representative capacity, he has the authority to sign in that capacity. The signatory is not required to sign in the presence of the notary public. However, they are required to be present in front of the notary to confirm their signature.
