I need to know what the rules are for proper notarization of legal assignment documents should be in NY.
I have seen some documents relevant to my cooperative loans depicting a notarization on a separate blank page from the actual documents which does not refer to them generally or in any specificity.
Furthermore, the assignment documents (proprietary lease, loan security, shares of stock) have no named assignee in the assign to fields.
Next the notarization page has states in part that the signor's ( one being notarized) residence was at an address which in fact is impossible in that the address is the address of the business
same is alleged to be an employee of.
In short it seems minimally sloppy but more so I am concerned about possible mortgage fraud.
The notary was done in 1989 and I have no knowledge of the persons, and the company is out of business since that period of time.
What are the rules of a notary regarding these type of matters?
Can these fields for the assignee be left blank and be a valid assignment?
I would think I could put my name in it and it would be mine...
