My wife is a banker in Kansas and her training manual has thirteen different POA signature models that are currently acceptable to her employer (including the special California requirement). I keep the list in my briefcase, but I always ask the TC what variations, IF ANY, are acceptable to them.

This is an informative post for California notaries. It would make it easier for readers if you began with "In California."

If I read your post correctly, for example, what the escrow officer told you is not correct for Connecticut. Under Connecticut statutes, John Doe holding a POA for Sue Doe would sign "John Doe" and print after or under his signature "attorney-in-fact for Sue Doe." He would sign his own name on the signature line and then add the verbiage according to Connecticut statutes; the initials would be his, too.

Just giving you an example of how "Notaries Public do everything the same, but different."

It should be noted that this is a TC/Lender specific issue and may vary on a case by case basis..some want docs signed "John Doe, AIF for Sue Doe"..others may want it "Sue Doe by John Doe, AIF"...when you know you have a POA signing then close attention needs to be paid to TC/Lender specific instructions (I also, as a matter of course, confirm that Lender has approved the POA). It goes without saying that no matter what the TC/Lender requirements are for signing docs, individual state notary law prevails in completing the notary certificates.
