The Town Clerk's Office DOES NOT notarize wills, testaments, estate, power of attorney or real estate documents. Individuals seeking notarization of these documents must consult another notary, paralegal or attorney who is also a notary.

Further, the Town Clerk's Office notaries will NOT attest to a principal's (signer's) state of mind. For example, documents with notarial language that states "I believe the principal to be of sound mind…" etc. will not be notarized.

Please also be aware that some documents require witnesses as well as a notary. If your document requires witnesses, you must bring the required number of witnesses with you when you appear at our office.
