Ohio Notary Services
In Ohio, you’ll need a notary public when you sell a car, conduct a real estate transaction, take an oath required by the law, undergo a deposition, designate a power of attorney, or provide other written witness, such as affidavits.
Even if a transaction or statement does not require a notary’s services, many people engage a notary public to record their signature on the document for proof.
Ohio notary publics thus serve as important deterrents to fraudulent transactions. A seller would think twice before signing a sales slip for a fake item—if the buyer insists on their notarized signature.
