Notarize Your Documents with Online Notary in Texas
No Appointment, No Walk-ins
Status of Online Notary in Texas
With the enactment of H.B. 1217 by the 85th Session of the Texas Legislature (July 1, 2018, onwards), the notary publics were allowed to practice remote online notarization in Texas. Signers were no longer required to be physically present before the notary. The state also clarified all the guidelines that a notary public must follow to carry out notarial activities legally.
Due to this new bill, the concept of “personal appearance” took a new shape in the notarization world. It replaced physical appearance with a one-on-one audio-video call. However, the primary purpose of the notary public was still aimed to preserve, which is;
- Verify the identity of Individual
- Make sure Individual knows the meaning of Document
- The Individual is signing a document with their own will.
Here the bill included the word “individual” for the “signer” approaching the notary public to notarize their Document.
The notaries permitted to perform remote online notarization in Texas need to have their commissions from the state just like the traditional notaries. After that, they have to apply with the Texas Secretary of State and get their approval to practice as a remote online notary in Texas. The difference between traditional and remote online notarization will be that the notary will use eSeal, electronic signatures, KBN techniques, Credential analysis to notarize documents through audio-video calls, and finally, use a secure public key to seal the documents.
Therefore with RON, the profits are limitless, and ease is like never before. Not only the signers but notary publics are also happy with this legalization. The signers don’t have to wait in lines and fix appointments to get their documents notarized, whereas the notary public fetches more customers than traditional notarization. It is a win-on-win situation. Additionally, as stated earlier, due to the prior legalization of RON, Texas was prepared to manage notary transactions during the pandemic.
