South Carolina Notary Acknowledgement – Attorney-in-Fact

The South Carolina Notary Acknowledgement for an Attorney-in-Fact is used to authenticate the signature on a legal instrument signed by an attorney-in-fact as opposed to the principal. The signatory will be required to present themselves before a notary public, identify themselves, and sign the document in the notary’s presence. The officer will then fill out, sign, and seal the notarial certificate to be attached to the initial instrument. This type of acknowledgement confirms that the attorney-in-fact had the authority to execute the instrument and that the instrument was executed for the purposes stated therein.
