Notary Services

Per MGL Ch. 222,  documents for a real estate closing must be notarized by a Notary Public in an attorney’s office; the Belmont Town Clerk’s office Notary Public  will not notarize any real estate closing documents.

If you have a document that you need to be notarized, please be certain that the document already has the necessary Massachusetts Notary Public language; if not, please add the following Notary language at the end of the document:

On this ____day of _____________________, before me, the undersigned notary public, personally appeared    _______________________________________ proved to me through satisfactory evidence of identification, which were ______________________________,  to be the person whose name is signed on the preceding or attached document and acknowledged to me that he signed it voluntarily for its stated purpose.

_____________________________________________

We offer Notary Public Services during routine Town Clerk’s office hours as a convenience for our residents, however we ask that you call ahead to confirm that the Notary Public is available before you come to the office.   That way, should a scheduled meeting or appointment take the Notary out of the office, you won’t be disappointed.   Notaries are commonly available at Banks, Legal offices, Real Estate Offices and the UPS Store.
