Gov. Charlie Baker Announces Senate Bill No. 2645 allowing for remote online Notary Services
WEYMOUTH, MA -
MA Gov. Charlie Baker is now allowing Notary Publics across the Commonwealth to perform Notary Services online with services such as: Zoom, FaceTime, Google Duo, and other videoconferencing platforms.
Due to the COVID-19 crisis, Massachusetts will now allow remote Notary Services as long as the customer provides a COPY of his or her: signature, Federal or State ID, and allows for the Notary to confirm his or her identity and that in fact they are located within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts during the Notarization.
We will keep a copy of the document(s) that you have requested our services for, and, will retain copies of said documents and identification for up to 10 (ten) days after the services are completed. To ensure proper compliance, we will also be asking a set of questions as required by MA Law and require that the participant(s) be present on video during the ENTIRE transaction.
Please be advised that our fees will increase for this service, and the fees listed on our site are subject to change at any time, depending on the services used during this ever-changing world in which we now live.
For more information on Remote Notary Services from Weymouth Notary Service, please see the attached .pdf bill at the bottom of this post from the Massachusetts State Senate for more information.
