Warning About Loose Certificates: Preprinted notarial certificates designed to be attached to a document should be used only in rare circumstances. Most documents will have a notarial certificate already printed on the document. Use that certificate, but make it comply with Florida law, if necessary. If the document has no notarial certificate, you should ask the document signer which notarial act is required for the execution of the document (an oath/affirmation or an acknowledgment). At the signer's direction, you may type or print the appropriate certificate on the document below the designated signature line for the document signer. ONLY IN RARE CIRCUMSTANCES SHOULD YOU ACTUALLY ATTACH A "LOOSE CERTIFICATE". If you do, be sure to state in the notarial certificate the exact document and signature to which the notarization applies.
