What You Need To Know About Renewing a Notary Certificate

Renewing your notary public certification is an important step to maintaining your ability to notarize. If your certification expires and you act as a notary, even if accidentally, it can result in a misdemeanor. This is why it’s important to stay ahead of the renewal process so you can ensure a continuation of your service while meeting laws and guidelines.

NotaryThings to Keep In Mind:
  • How Long a Notary Appointment Lasts
    Depending on which state you live in, the length of your appointment as a notary public may vary. For example, an appointment for a notary in Florida lasts four years. If you are currently a notary public and want to renew your certificate, look up your state’s length of service requirements and when they recommend beginning renewal. It is good to keep in mind the length of your appointment so you can plan ahead for renewal.
  • What is Involved in the Renewal Process
    In some states, the process to renew a notary certificate is the same process you went through to obtain the certificate in the first place. You can research your state’s renewal process by searching Florida notary renewal (if you live in Florida, or insert your own state into the search) and reading through the requirements of your particular state. It can take as long as six months to complete the required steps of renewal and receive your updated certificate, so be sure to plan ahead so you can complete the process before your current appointment expires.
  • Remember To Restock Your Supplies
    As a notary, there are different supplies you may find useful in your role. Some of these supplies are a self-inking notary stamp, a notary journal, a receipt book for items you’ve notarized and other supplies. It can be a good idea to make a list of supplies you commonly use while fulfilling your duties as a notary and keep those items stocked so you’re always prepared. If you’re renewing your appointment, consider restocking your supplies as well.
Remember that notaries are a great service to the community and in high demand nationally. The high demand and appreciation of clients can make this a great side job.

Easy Ways to Improve Your Home

It does not have to cost thousands of dollars to give your home and update and achieve the look you desire. Here are some simple ways to bring your space to the next level.
  • Paint an Accent Wall - Sometimes a splash of color is all that you need to completely change the mood of a room. This can be achieved easily by painting an accent wall, which means painting one wall a bright or deep color in an otherwise neutral room. You can also get more creative and use a different material for your accent wall, such as brick, tile, or wood. Make sure that it stands out and will bring attention from guests, and harmony to the room
  • New rug
  • Add a Rug - A custom rug can brighten any room or area. You can choose a small rug as an accent, or a large rug that covers a bigger space. To find the perfect carpet, you should consult a specialty store in your area. For example, if you live in Atlanta, Georgia, simply search the internet for "rug store in atlanta ga," and you will find a list of vendors that are in your city. From there, you can compare your options.
  • open essential oil bottle
  • Pick a New Scent - It is always wonderful to come home to a great smelling space. Spice up your house by adding candles with seasonal scents, an essential oil diffuser, or even by simmering some apple slices and cinnamon sticks on your stove or in a crockpot. Many scents can have therapeutic effects, which can positively alter your mental health and well being. Mix up your fragrances depending on which room you are in, or the time of year you are in. The possibilities are endless.

Home improvement does not have to be a costly project. With these options, you can help your house feel more comfortable and inviting.
