Re: Notarial certificate for a Warranty Deed ...
Posted by VT_Syrup of VT on 9/23/22 12:54pm Msg #642438
It looks like Georgia has a somewhat new (2015) change in their law that makes them different from most other states when it comes to deeds. There is a Georgia title company with a page explaining it:

http://atlantatitleco.com/page/Georgia-Title-Standards/Execution-Attestation/

The problem seems to be that to attest a signature, the officer doing the attestation must see the signer sign. An acknowledgement does not require the officer to see the signature, it's enough for the signer to tell the officer that he signed.

Administering an oath does require the officer to see the signer sign, so that meets the Georgia requirement. Administering an oath is an authorized act for a CA notary. Of course, it would be memorialized by filling out a jurat.

As a VT notary, it appears I could fulfill the Georgia requirement by doing a signature witnessing, which is an authorized notarial act in VT but not in quite a few other states, such as CA.
