More information regarding the types of documents that need to be notarized:
Some documents may not be legally enforced if there is not a notarization. The reason behind this is to protect the public from fraud. A notary ensures that the person signing the document is actually the person named on the document and is not being forced to sign against their will. Legal documents typically require a notarization.
A common type of document that needs a notary to witness is a document that transfers the assets of one person to another. These documents are wills, deeds and trusts.
Medical documents are also a common document that needs to be notarized. Living wills are very common. These explain what medical treatment a person wishes to have or not have should the person become unable to explain it themselves. To prevent disputes between family and friends, the doctors will have to abide by the wishes of the patient.
A power of attorney is another legal document that requires a notary witness. This gives another person the power to act on behalf of another person. This can be for certain tasks or a certain amount of time. The document must be notarized in order to be accepted by banks and courts of law.
Many times there are long distance agreements in which the parties are not able to be in the same place at the same time to have documents notarized. In an instance like this, it is imperative that the signers have their signatures notarized individually.
These are a few examples as to why a document needs to be notarized..
