 We used to certify “this is a true copy of an original doc”

Now we are just certifying that “this is a true copy of a record”.

What is a record? That’s the problem. The Statutes say a “record” is “information inscribed on a tangible medium of that is stored in an electronic or other medium”. They include data, text, images and “other representations of knowledge” in the definition of “information”. It’s a mess, and maybe this wasn’t legislative intent - but they are basically allowing us to attest to copies of anything - drawings, pictures, and basically anything that’s capable of being copied, as long as it isn’t a vital or public record.

This is what happens when you let the real estate industry dictate notary law.
