Power of Attorney:

A power of attorney is a legal document in which one person, called the principal, gives another person, called the agent, the power to manage the principal's financial affairs.


Acknowledge Contracts:

A notary public (or simply "notary") provides an acknowledgment that the signature appearing on the document is that of the person whose signature it purports to be. There is a requirement that some documents be notarized, such as a real property deed.


Release of Lien:

You can reduce the risk of having a lien by asking your contractor to furnish you with an affidavit stating that all bills have been paid.


Affidavits:

A voluntary declaration of facts, written down and sworn to or affirmed by the declarant (“affiant”) before a Notary Public.


Certified Copies:

A certify copy proves the copy is a true copy of the original document. It is usually used in business transactions, or when someone has to submit certain information and does not want to part with their sole copy.


Depositions:

In the law of the United States, a deposition is the out-of-court oral testimony of a witness that is reduced to writing for later use in court or for discovery purposes.
