Have Legal Questions? Ask a Lawyer Now.
Thank you for the link to Atkinson Bros. that publication along with the guide from the American Association of Notaries published by Kal xxxxx has been very helpful over the years. Atkinson seems a bit more precise, only a few "gaps". : ) I have a few other questions, but I will submit them to you individually for obvious reasons. Here are the words I came up with to be used as a tool for the title and closing companies to potentially use. Once reviewed, I was thinking of offering a quick "how to" guide on my website to sell to the notaries in Texas. I have many of the certificates and affidavits up for sale in standardized and personalized pads. But will request a quick review in another question. The Subcommittee of the UPL in Texas has helped me make sure I do not cross any lines...but the more information the better. Please adjust and critique as you like. For me this is business, so I do not take offense to criticism and have a very thick skin. "Do you swear, (affirm) under the penalties of perjury, the statements, affidavits, information, and directions in this loan package are true and correct, and that you acknowledge these are your signatures which you sign willingly for the purposes stated within it (them), (so help you God)? Remember, I am a lay person with no legal training...but what I was thinking of is all the directions..warranties, data, personal information, direction to settlement agents, county clerks on the Deeds, and everything else which are added to the loan docs and try to encompass everything in one statement. Thank you again for reviewing.
