Recording Requirement for Acknowledgments and Jurats
Bill 886 (Statutes of 2007, Chapter 399) was signed into law
and makes several significant changes to Civil Code sections
1185 and 1189 and Government Code 8202.
Effective January 1, 2008, the law will require an officer, when
executing a California Certificate of Acknowledgment, or a
Jurat, to determine based on satisfactory evidence that the
person making the acknowledgment is the individual who is
described in and who executed the instrument. Accordingly, the
verbiage of both the California Certificate of Acknowledgment
and the Jurat will change. A “penalty of perjury” statement
will also be added to the acknowledgment.
The new Acknowledgment
forms are available in PDF file format and can be viewed and
printed from your computer.
