Electronic notarization, which is sometimes referred to as “eNotarization” involves documents that are notarized digitally, while signing still occurs in the presence of the notary. Not all documents can be notarized in this way. Though many can be officially notarized via electronic notarization.
The process involves the Notary and document signer submitting an electronic signature in physical proximity to each other, though another principal or secondary party might be at a remote location.
This means that all other elements of a traditional, paper notarization still apply. This includes the signer physically appearing before the Notary. The documents are then submitted to all other parties. This might be a third-party seller, an auto dealer at a remote location, a real estate broker in another location, or another person’s lawyer.
