On Tuesday, June 16, 2015, a local Greenville resident called from J-Auto Service on the corner of Grove and White Horse Road with the need of a document and with the need of a notary. There are many states that allow notaries to draft documents on behalf of parties needing document notarization, however, South Carolina is NOT one of them. By law, it is illegal to draft a document party to a notarization, also illegal to draft a legal document that you DO NOT notarize. So notaries, be careful when you come in contact with a party that needs a particular type of document. DO NOT DRAFT DOCUMENTS on behalf of signers!
For this instance, the document was drafted by one of the parties ON SITE, the notarial language was placed at the end of the document so the notarial process could be rendered. The document was executed shortly thereafter.
Assignment completed by Certified Notary Public Signing Agent Sonita M. Leak.
