Why is it necessary to have my documents Notarized?
To prevent or discourage fraud.

The Notary Public is needed to certify the identity of document signers, administer oaths and affirmations and act as impartial witnesses.As an impartial witness (the Notary) ensures that the signers of documents are who they say they are and not impostors. The Notary makes sure that signers have entered into agreements knowingly and willingly.

Title Tip
Reassigning the title is as simple as filling out section A on the reverse side of the certificate of title. The previous owner or lienholder must do this in the presence of a Notary, and in order for it to be valid, give the reassigned title to you at the time the vehicle is delivered. If you, as the new owner, don’t receive or take possession of the vehicle, the title transfer is invalid. When you register the vehicle, you will then apply for a new title.

A Notary Public notarizes signatures on documents.
They do not notarize the documents.
