Notary for POA Signing, Notary Signing as Principal at Diamond Health and Rehab

Travel to Simpsonville, South Carolina during ‘Rush Hour’? No problem.  Sign the signature of a Principal without the ability to physically sign WHILE on the mad hunt for additional witnesses? Well, that was a little harder to do.

When notaries public travel to assisted living, retirement community, rehabilitation or hospice care centers, staff members and workers usually cannot sign as witnesses.  This can present a problem for a lone notary upon entrance.  So what do you do?  You make it work. was called for a Power of Attorney signing for a customer who was a patient at Diamond Health and Rehabilitation, 807 South East Main Street, Simpsonville, SC 29681.  Upon arrival, several questions were asked and it was deemed by the notary that the Principal was of sound mind. However, as was the case in two separate instances before this, the Principal was unable to sign their document physically.

When this happens in South Carolina, two separate witnesses (and not the notary) must witness whoever the Principal designates to sign on their behalf.  Certified Notary Public Signing Agent Sonita M. Leak went to work signing on behalf of the Principal with the aid of two witnesses we had to play hardball to find.
