Banks will generally employ managers, supervisors or other employees who are also notary publics.  Most banks offer notary services to their customers for documents that involve financial transactions pertaining to the bank.  On occasion, banks will notarize documents for customers that did not originate from the bank but this service is performed at the bank’s discretion.  Most banks will not notarize documents for non-bank customers.  Call your local bank and inquire if they have a notary available and inform the notary in advance about the documents you have to make sure the bank does not have policy that does not allow them to notarize a non-bank document.

Banks will generally not charge a fee when notarizing documents on bank premises or in connection with a bank transaction.  There are some banks that do list a small fee for the notary services.  You may want to refer to your bank’s fee disclosures for more information on the fees that may apply to their notary services.

Each state authorizes a notary to perform a limited range of activities called notarizations.  The functions of notaries can vary from state to state.  Standard notary functions include the attestation of documents and certification of their execution, witnessing affidavits and statutory declarations, certification of copy documents and more.

Notarization services that are performed at the bank will require that the notary first screen the signer.  The notary is responsible for verifying that the signer is the person listed on the document, this involves reviewing identity cards such as a driver’s license or testimony from one or more credible identifying witnesses; the signer is responsible for bringing the necessary identification or witnesses to the bank.
