Notarial Record Amendments
Public Act SB 546 amends the Illinois Notary Public Act.  The Amendments apply to any person appointed and commissioned as an Illinois Notary Public.

The Act has 2 parts.  First, it requires an Illinois Notary to create a Notarial Record including thumbprint for every grantor whose signature is to be notarized  on transfers of Cook County Residential Real Property.  Second, the Act defines satisfactory evidence of identification to be examined by all Illinois notaries when notarizing any document.

For further explanation and for a printable version of the Act, please scroll down to the Documents, Forms and Disclosures section below.
