NOTARIZATION
HAVE ON A
DOCUMENT?
WHAT EFFECT DOES NOTARIZATION HAVE ON A
DOCUMENT?
WHAT EFFECT DOES NOTARIZATION HAVE ON A
DOCUMENT?
• Notarization converts a private document into a public document and
renders the document admissible in court as evidence without need
for further proof of its authenticity. A notarized document is entitled,
by law, to full faith and credit upon its face. Notarization also vests
upon the document the presumption of regularity unless it is
impugned by strong, complete and conclusive proof.
(Sec. 30, Rule 132, Rules of Court; De Rosales vs. Ramos, A.C. No. 5645, July 2, 2002)

• Notarization of private document converts such document into a


public one and renders it admissible in court without further proof of
its authenticity (Nadayag v. Grageda, 9-27-94)
MAY A LAWYER NOTARIZED DOCUMENTS OUTSIDE
ITS TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION?
MAY A LAWYER NOTARIZED DOCUMENTS OUTSIDE
ITS TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION?

• No. The Supreme Court through an en banc decision rendered on June 29, 2009
additionally imposed the penalty of revoking the lawyers’ notarial commission and
disqualified him from discharging duties as a notary public for an additional period
of two years.
MAY A LAWYER NOTARIZED DOCUMENTS OUTSIDE
ITS TERRITORIAL JURISDICTION?

• No. The Supreme Court through an en banc decision rendered on June 29, 2009
additionally imposed the penalty of revoking the lawyers’ notarial commission and
disqualified him from discharging duties as a notary public for an additional period
of two years.
• The act of notarizing documents outside one’s area of commission is not to be taken
lightly. Aside from being a violation of section 11 of the 2004 Rules on Notarial
Practice, it also partakes of malpractice of law and falsification.

• The act of notarizing documents outside one’s area of commission is not to be taken
lightly. Aside from being a violation of section 11 of the 2004 Rules on Notarial
Practice, it also partakes of malpractice of law and falsification.
• Since the public is deceived into believing that he has been duly commissioned, it
also amounts to indulging in deliberate falsehood, which the lawyers’ oath
proscribes.
MAY A LAWYER ALLOW HIS SPOUSE TO DO
NOTARIAL ACTS IN HIS ABSENCE?

• Personally accountable for the documents that he admitted were


signed by his wife. He cannot relieve himself of liability by passing the
blame to his wife. He is thus guilty of violating Canon 9 of CPR, which
requires lawyers not to directly or indirectly assist in the
unauthorized practice of law.
WHAT IS THE EFFECT IF A LAWYER NOTARIZED A DOCUMENT
DESPITE THE EXPIRATION OF HIS NOTARIAL COMMISSION?

• The Notary Public may be subjected to disciplinary action and also


constitutes a violation of the lawyers’ oath to obey the laws and more
specifically the Notarial Law.
MAY A LAWYER NOTARIZE A DOCUMENT WITHOUT THE
PERSONAL APPEARANCE OF THE PARTIES?

• No. The parties must appear before the Notary Public where the
Notary Public certify that the person acknowledging the instrument is
known to him and he is the same person who executed it and
acknowledged that the same is his free act and deed (Bon versus Atty. Ziga).
