PA Notary Law Changes Take Effect on October 26, 2017

Posted · Add Comment

Pennsylvania has adopted a version of the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts. The new law, which takes effect on October 26, 2017, codifies provisions relating to notaries in Title 57 and repeals existing laws relating to notaries.

The new law will be of interest not only to notaries but to elder law and other lawyers who use notaries.

A copy of the law (57 Pa.C.S. §301-331) is available here. An overview of its major changes to prior law is available here.  The National Notary Association has a useful compendium of various PA statutes that are related to the notary process: https://tinyurl.com/y6vuvlfp

Further information on the regulation of notaries in Pennsylvania is available on the PA Department of State website: www.dos.pa.gov/OtherServices/Notaries.
