You have bought or sold some real estate and your lender or real estate agent says, “congratulations, please get these notarized,” and hands you a stack of papers. Now what do you do? Most people start at the usual suspects, they go to their bank or to the local shipping store. If you are in Indiana, the notary will turn you away at either one of these options. The reason why the notary is not going to notarize your documents is because they can’t. They are not falling down on the job or being difficult, he or she doesn’t have the additional license required to complete the transaction.
