Hotline Tip: What ‘Venue’ Refers To On Notarial Certificates

New Hotline Resized 3The “venue” portion of the notarial certificate can be a source of confusion for Notaries. The venue denotes where the actual notarization took place, not where your bond is filed, where you live or where you hold your commission.

Even though the certificate is the province of the Notary, it will sometimes be completed before the Notary receives the document — and not always correctly. In these cases, the Notary should draw a line through the incorrect venue and write in the correct one.
