Commercial Loan Notarial Certificates



If you spend much time reading or interacting in online notary forums, you have undoubtedly read, “I can’t notarize capacity,” or “I can’t certify capacity.”  

   Texans, cover your eyes!   

These statements generally come from notaries who are in California.  
If you aspire to learn how to handle commercial loan documents, you'll learn to be adept at managing certificates like this one, for example:
Sam Smith signed in a representative capacity “president” while representing his own company, Smith Enterprises, Inc.   The notarial certificate attached to a document looks like this.  You'll be notarizing Sam’s signature.  
Unfortunately, when you get a certificate it might look like this! Now, what in the heck do you do with all those blanks!? 
STATE OF TEXAS
COUNTY OF HARRIS
This instrument was acknowledged before me on ____ by ___________, __________, a ____ corporation.
________________________
Notary Public, State of Texas

  How will you get from that to this completed certificate?
