(snickers) TRAMP!

ok thats a reasonable rate...im in the los angeles area...

My past experience has been $3-5 for a document. Normal time; 5 minutes ( at bank). I haven't had to pay in a few years now, we have one on the premises, so my figures may be off.

"In accordance with Article 36 Section 23 of the Annotated Code of Maryland, the Secretary of State is authorized to issue regulations regarding notarial fees. Regulations were issued and became effective on October 8, 1984, outlined as follows:

A notary public may demand and receive a fee of not more than $2.00 for the performance of an original notarial act
When a notary public is requested to notarize more than one copy of the same document, where the copy or copies have been signed at the same time by the person or persons, the notary may demand and receive not more than $2.00 for notarizing each signature on the original or first copy of the document, and may demand and receive not more than $1.00 for each signature on each additional copy of the same document
When a notary public is requested to make reproductions of a notarized document by photocopying or other means, the notary may demand and receive not more than $1.00 for each copy furnished
A notary public may charge up to 25¢ per mile and a fee not to exceed $5, as compensation for travel required for the performance of a notarial act. "

Go to your bank. Banks usually have someone who can do it. If you have an account with them, they might do it for free.

It's pretty quick. They stamp the document, and then you sign it, and then they sign it as a witness.

we got two items notarized last week for $10 total at a printing place.

My parents got their documents notarized at their local bank for free.

see if they have a PostNet in your area. That is the place we used and they typically have notaries on staff.

I tried that with Washington Mutual. The manager is the only notary and he refused to spend the time to notarize WaMu home loan documents! I ended up having to rush to a Mailboxes Etc and I barely made the last dropoff time for FedEx. <img src="i/expressions/face-icon-small-mad.gif" border=0>

Right, but I drive to the residence or business and gas ain't cheap.

I would have written a letter to the corporate office to complain.

You didn't say you're a mobile notary previously... I'm not snickering now.

That really helps ALOT of people out that can't get either 1) out of the house or 2) out of work in business hours

Negotiable. I usually just leave a $20 on the nightstand.

Sorry about that.
And since I only do it 2 days a week,
I make better usage of my time.

It's not much, but I needed to become a notary anyway for a different reason and just added this on.

Yes, I got a canned letter of apology. More human interest my AZZZZ!

Come and let me do it. I'll only charge you $15.

So that justifies the first one being $15, but each additional one should be $1 or $2... $5 tops...

There's usually a notary on staff at City Hall. When I worked for the city manager, I was required to become a notary. We were not allowed to charge for notarizing documents (during business hours anyway)

Banks and city halls usually do it for free. My neighbor charges a cold beer or hot latte.

bump becuase I'm a notary... Go TEAM!

Why are they called notary publics? What's the "public" all about?

legal witness for hire for the masses.

Bank of America, it's free if you have an account with them

That's totally unacceptable! I would complain and complain loudly to the top! They should reimburse you for the notary fee and toss in a few other perks.

My business bank wouold notarize anything I brought in, and I had a lot of notarized documents! Then they sold out to Citibank and started to only notarize Citibank related docs. It's taken awhile, but they're begining to soften their stand a bit. It really pays to getto know the manager and tellers personally and develope a friendly relationship with them.

BTW The standard fee in CA is $10.

Never paid to have anything notarized.

When I was a notary, and it doesn't take anything to be one, I didn't charge.
Ofcourse at the time the company I worked for paid for the stamp and seal but I never charged any of my friends a penny.
