Need to notarize your contractor’s affidavit (AIA G706 Form)? 

Notarizing your contractor’s affidavit form is an important step in the construction process. 

A contractor's affidavit is a legal document that is used to validate the data the contractor has provided. This includes their name, address, and license information. 


1. Why Should You Notarize Your Contractor’s Affidavit Form? 

Whether a contractor's affidavit form needs to be notarized depends on the particular laws and rules of the country where the building project is taking place.

In some instances, the local government or another regulatory body may demand that a contractor's declaration be notarized to get the project's permission.

The notarization may not be specifically needed, but it is still a good idea to have the affidavit notarized to provide extra evidence of the eligibility of the information obtained in the affidavit and to guard against future legal problems. 

This is similar to the Notice Of Commencement Form that is needed to notify those of the beginning and end of a construction project. 

In the past, you had to locate a notary public and make an appointment in order to notarize a contractor's affidavit. 

This might take a lot of time and be a hassle, especially if you are rushing to finish the form. With the help of online notarization, it's been made easier than ever before!

FAQ For Contractor's Affidavit 

  •  What is an affidavit of construction?
    • A construction affidavit verifies unpaid subcontractors or vendors on a project, listing who and how much is owed. It ensures all other payments are made and is sometimes needed for legal actions or final payment releases. 
  • How powerful is an affidavit?
    • An affidavit is a sworn written statement used as evidence in legal cases. It's signed by the affiant (the person making the statement) and a legal authority like a notary public. False information in an affidavit can lead to criminal charges, so accuracy and truthfulness are crucial before signing. 
  •  What are the risks of signing an affidavit?
    • Lying on an affidavit can lead to perjury charges. Only mentally competent individuals should sign one, especially if it relates to a witnessed event with legal implications. Ensure the document is accurate and consult a lawyer before signing, as it may be crafted to favor the requester and not fully represent the truth. Be aware that every detail in the affidavit could be examined in court to challenge your credibility.
