Notary Acceptance Policy

Date: 5月 4, 2020

This memo is to inform Los Angeles County Registrar-Recorder/County Clerk customers about our policy on the acceptance of electronically signed and notarized documents. Our Department will accept electronically signed and notarized documents, including RON (Remote Online Notary), if the following conditions are met:

  1. The acknowledgment is taken in accordance with the law of the State where the acknowledgment is made per California Civil Code 1189(b).
    As these notary laws are changing rapidly at this time, our office refers to the National Notary Association's new law database for the most current information located here nationalnotary.org/knowledge-center/news/law-updates
  2. The electronically signed and notarized document is submitted electronically through SECURE if the submitter has completed and returned the new MOU released to all existing customers March 30, 2020.
  3. The electronically signed and notarized document may be submitted as paper, only if the State where the acknowledgment takes place allows for a “papering out” process and the document is accompanied by a notary certification, with an original signature and seal by a notary, to certify the electronic record.

California Law does not currently provide the authority for California Notaries Public to perform a remote online notarization. The personal appearance of the document signer is required before the notary public.

If you have questions, please contact me through email jpailma@rrcc.lacounty.gov or at (562) 462-2889.
