Law

NV Assembly Bill 325

Notary Law Update: NV Assembly Bill 325

State: Nevada

Summary:
Assembly Bill 325 allows a Notary to certify that a paper printout of an electronic document is a true and correct copy.

Signed:  May 31, 2021

Effective:  July 01, 2021

Chapter: 243

Affects:
Creates as yet uncodified sections in Chapters 240 and 247 of the Nevada Revised Statutes.

Changes:
  1. Allows a paper copy of an electronic document to be certified as a true copy and recorded in the land records.
  2. Provides a certificate for a paper printout copy certification that must be completed by a Notary Public or notarial officer.
Analysis:

New laws allowing Notaries to perform a new copy certification in which the Notary certifies that a paper printout of an electronically notarized document is a true and correct copy are increasingly being enacted in legislatures across the country. These new laws are necessary because two-thirds of all states now all remote online notarization and not all land recording offices across the country can accept electronic records. Thus, these new copy certification laws accommodate those recording offices that have not yet implemented electronic recording. Assembly Bill 325 makes Nevada the twenty-seventh state to enact such a statute.
