There are no shortages of notaries in Vancouver. You’ll find well over 70 notary public offices in downtown Vancouver alone. It can be an over whelming choice.

Still, don’t just hire any notary public services. It’s important to carefully consider which you hire for your administrative and notary services. While it may be best just to find one nearest to you for convenience, as with any occupation and field there are varying levels of service quality, pricing, and individuals. When it comes to contracts and notarizations, you don’t want any errors or headaches in the process.

Here are some individuals who had the unfortunate experience of picking a bad notary:

“I incurred a few hundred dollars in penalties and interest charges in order to fix this situation, including getting a 2nd bank draft when the numbers she gave me were incorrect.  “ – Anna L.

“I used Pat Wright for the purchase of two properties. She screwed up both transactions. I’m extremely well organized and gave Pat very comprehensive files complete with a detailed reconciliation…..yet she still managed to screw up the transaction.” – Terry R.

“On the statement of charges, there was a fee of nearly $400 listed as “Other fees”. When I asked about it, they brushed me off and told me they will obtain details of the fees later.” – James A.

 

As much as “BC Notaries” association states that notaries are esteemed members of the public who uphold to the highest standards of integrity and trust, you’ll find that there are plenty of the public who have had unpleasant experiences with notaries.

Even still, you may run into several dishonest reviews online without your best intentions (unlike VancityAsks.com 😉 – typically you only can trust the consistently bad reviews without doing further fact checking.) If a business has faked reviews, we have automatically removed it from consideration for dishonesty. Reviews are diligently checked for truthfulness and validity.

Make sure you find a right notary office for your real estate, power of attorneys, and notarization needs who will provide a reputable standard of service. Note as well that notary service prices are not standardize so each notary office will charge their own fees as they choose.

    Went to the TD branch right by Pacific Centre at 700 W Georgia St, Vancouver. Was told they do not offer notary services.

      Your mileage will vary as it can depend on the individual you spoke to.

      I would imagine certain branches may not choose to offer the notary public services; they are certainly not obliged to. (As with anything pertaining to human customer service, it depends on who you speak to and how informed they are.)

      However, their website does clearly indicates that TD does offer complementary notary public services:
      http://tdbank.intelliresponse.com/index.jsp?requestType=NormalRequest&source=6&id=1714&question=Does+TD+Bank+offer+notary+public+services

      While the TD response indicates it’s a service offered to all regardless of being a client at TD; it’s generally assumed that you have an account with them. (did you have an account with TD?)

      If you don’t, most banks should also have staff who can notarize documents and many do provide free notary public services upon request. Generally speaking, you’d want to go to the bank that you use frequently so there’s some rapport and familiarity for them to offer you the free service.

      Thanks for sharing the information that TD Branch by Pacific Centre does not offer free notary public service. It may be best to call your bank to confirm before visiting to avoid a wasted trip.

        Furthermore, if you can’t get your bank to notarize the document for you. TD Pacific Centre is just 5 minutes from Yoshida Notary at 938 Howe Street.

        I’ve used Mr.Yoshida (Curtis Yoshida) Notary Public services which was very convenient. He tries to fit your schedule even working outside his business hours. Friendly, quick, and professional services that is competitively priced (base on my experience). You can give him an email at curtis@notarydowntown.ca

      It is my understanding that only the TD branches in the USA offer free notary services to their customers. FYI, almost all US banks provide free notary service, but I haven’t found any in Canada so far.
