Notary for Durable Power of Attorney Requiring Two (2) Witness Signatures | Headquarters

A Principal to a Durable Power of Attorney document appeared at the steps of with her Agent to sign.  The call rang in at 2:55pm and by 3:00pm, five minutes later, the clients were being serviced.

State of South Carolina Power of Attorney documents require two witness signatures.  Many people get the function of the witness incorrect.  The witness must ‘see’ the Principal sign the document, and only then can the witness or witnesses pen their signature.

The notarization process of Powers of Attorney can also differ.  On most documents, the Agent or Attorney-in-Fact (the person taking the authority to act on behalf of the signer), however, on some, the Agent or Successor Agent’s signature must also be notarized.

This signing was conducted at the Headquarters on Friday, October 2, 2015 by Certified Notary Public Signing Agent and Owner, Sonita M. Leak.
