According to the National Notary Association, there are 4.8 million notaries working in the U.S. Depending upon state regulations, notaries can perform marriages, witness and authenticate the signing of real estate mortgage loan documents and other legal contracts, and take and certify depositions. Notaries can make an average of $10 to $200 per signing, depending on the document type.
Each state has individual guidelines that one must follow when first applying to become a notary and specific restrictions that a practicing notary must abide by, including the amount a notary can charge per signing. With all of these rules, it can be quite a confusing process, and along with the frustration of opening your own business. Fortunately, with this new book, you will have a comprehensive toolkit on not only how to become a notary, but on how to open your own notary business.
Whether you will be a mobile signing agent or you are looking to buy or rent office space, this book can help you with a wealth of start-up information, from how to form and name your business. Valuable information on forming a partnership, LLC, corporation, or becoming a sole proprietor, the four types of business formations, is included, and also the legal implications of each.
You will learn the ins and outs of the application process state-by-state, including which states require training sessions and exams, and also information on the appointment process and individual state laws that govern the practice of notaries. Beyond providing you with the information on becoming a notary, you will be supplied with a wealth of information about opening your own notary business, including working as a mobile signing agent, where you travel to your customers, or operating a full-scale notary business managing other notaries.
