|I agree that the signer should have refused to sign the incomplete document. |
I've been coaching her on how to handle the notary (/property manager) since she keeps doing this sort of thing.
And I found the forms on line to report the notary to the FL notary board.
This particular notary/property-manager owns the property management company (a corporation)
I'm still a bit perplexed about whether or not the notary (/property manager) has a financial interest in the contracts. The property manager is paid to go out and get bids. Then she's paid to manage the work. And often the contracts do not even have the name of the association, just the name of property manager's company and her name.
The below is from http://notaries.dos.state.fl.us/education/faq/financial.html
"For instance, when a notary receives a sales commission on the transaction at hand (the sale of an automobile, an insurance policy, real estate, etc.), he or she would be prohibited from notarizing the signatures those persons involved. Additionally, the owner of a business should not notarize signatures on documents pertaining to his business transactions."
I think that covers the owner of the property managment company notarizing contracts that she's paid to negotiate and manage.
