New CALIFORNIA Notary Acknowledgement and Jurat Forms On January 1, 2015

Effective January 1, 2015, pursuant to Senate Bill 1050, all CALIFORNIA county Recorder’s Offices will require the Notary Consumer Disclosure. This bill requires a legible notice at the top in an enclosed box, stating that the Acknowledgment, or or Jurat verifies only the identity of the individual who signed the document to which the acknowledgment, or jurat is attached, and not the truthfulness, accuracy, or validity of the document.


Documents such as a Mechanics Lien or Release of Mechanics Lien where the person appeared before a notary or other officer on or after January 1, 2015 must have this disclosure or will be rejected. Documents acknowledged before January 1, 2015 will be accepted for recording and must meet current applicable statue.

PreLien2Lien will have this new notary text change incorporated into the 18.12.01 version, slated to be released after Thanksgiving.
