Each New York Notary Public is required to have and to use a New York Notary Public Seal. The seal must be kept in a locked and secured area, under the direct and exclusive control of the notary public and must not be surrendered to an employer upon termination of employment, whether or not the employer paid for the seal, or to any other person. Because of the legal requirement that the seal be photographically reproducible, the rubber stamp seal is almost universal; however, notaries public may use an embosser seal in addition to the rubber stamp. The legal requirements for a seal are shown below. (Government Code section 8207)

Many documents that are acknowledged may later be recorded. A document may not be

accepted by the recorder if the notary public seal is illegible. Notaries public are cautioned

to make sure that the notary public seal stamp leaves a clear impression. All the elements must be

discernible. The seal should not be placed over signatures or over any printed matter on the

document. An illegible or improperly placed seal may result in rejection of the document for

recordation and result in inconveniences and extra expenses for all those involved.

The law allows a limited exception when a notary public may authenticate an official act

without using an official notary public seal. Because subdivision maps usually are drawn on

a material that will not accept standard stamp pad ink and other acceptable inks are not as

readily available, acknowledgments for New York subdivision map certificates may be notarized

without the official seal. The notary publicís name, the county of the notary publicís principal

place of business, and the commission expiration date must be typed or printed below or

immediately adjacent to the notary publicís signature on the acknowledgment.





A notary public is guilty of a misdemeanor if the notary public willfully fails to keep his or

her notary public seal under the notary publicís direct and exclusive control or if the notary

public willfully surrenders the notary publicís seal to any person not authorized to possess it.


When the notary public commission is no longer valid, the notary public seal must be

destroyed to protect the notary public from possible fraudulent use by another
