Massachusetts (Temporarily!) Allows Remote Notarization
The BBA endorsed temporary legislation authorizing notarization and witnessing of documents to be conducted remotely, by videoconference. The Legislature passed, and the Governor enacted, such a law, which addresses an urgent need that was brought to our attention by practitioners from a number of our sections, including Trusts & Estates and Real Estate. Read an exclusive Boston Bar Journal article on the requirements and restrictions for this new law. Thank you to the authors Sara Goldman Curley, Kerry Spindler, and Rebecca Tunney.
