No, an eviction notice does not have to be notarized to be legally binding. While the laws may vary slightly from state to state, an eviction notice only requires the signature of the landlord or landlord’s agent.
An eviction notice is a legally binding document a landlord provides to their tenant, informing them that they must either comply with the rental or lease agreement or vacate the property. Typically, an eviction notice offers tenants a determined number of days to pay rent or fix any damages in question.
If that period ends without resolution, the landlord may file an eviction lawsuit against the tenant.
Though the terminology and details may differ across states, the cause for and type of eviction notices typically fall into three categories.
While laws regarding document notarization vary by state, there are several types of rental, real estate, and closing documents that you will always need to get notarized.

Remote online notarization (RON) is a type of notarization carried out entirely online using audio-visual technology and electronic forms. This differs from more traditional notarization services, where the document signers must appear in person before a notary to complete a signature.
Online notarization allows both notaries and document signers to complete a notarization act within minutes from wherever they happen to be located. This eliminates the need to schedule a place and time to meet with a notary, giving you the freedom to notarize documents exactly when needed.
With Remote Online Notarization, the documents and signer identities are analyzed and verified within minutes using a knowledge-based authentication system. Once the tamper-proof, encrypted seal is electronically applied, detailed records of the entire notarial act are then stored for all parties to access at any time. These security features ensure that online notarization is the most secure and trustworthy form of notarization.
