Notary Public Sonita M. Leak was called for an after hours signing on behalf of a local couple seeking service when they were both available.
Some documents are date-sensitive. Because appearance before a notary cannot be either pre nor post-dated (meaning documents must be signed before the notary for the date of appearance before the notary only), the couple was in a scramble to find a notary open during the hours that they were both available for signing on today, Tuesday, September 22, 2015.
A Warranty Deed is a fairly short document, usually at one to two pages long. The wife’s name on the document was shown one way, however, her name is now another due to the couple’s recent nuptials.
No fear for this signer. She signed her name as it is currently, then right beside wrote FKA (formerly known as), listing the name she was previously known by.
Today’s Warranty Deed signing was for a State of Tennessee real property sale, conducted by GreenvilleNotary.com Owner and National Notary Association Ambassador Sonita M. Leak.
