Hotline Tip: Notarizing Motor Vehicle Titles

NNA Hotline Tips For NotariesIf I am notarizing a motor vehicle title, do both the seller and the buyer have to be physically present at the same time in order for me to notarize their signatures, or just the seller? – H.W., Scranton, PA 

You not need both parties to be physically present at the time of notarization, but you can only notarize for the person who is appearing before you. The other person can have their signature notarized at another time.

Hotline answers are based on the laws in the state where the question originated and may not reflect the laws of other states. If in doubt, always refer to your own state statutes. –The Editors
