    The Notary Public Law
    (Act No. 373 of 1953, as amended by Act 151 of 2002, effective July 1, 2003)

    Section 19. Limitation on Powers; Fees.--
    (a) ((a) Deleted by amendment)
    (b) ((b) Deleted by amendment)
    (c) ((c) Deleted by amendment)

    (d) No district justice, holding at the same time the office of notary public, shall have jurisdiction in cases arising on papers or documents containing acts by him done in the office of notary public.

    (e) No notary public may act as such in any transaction in which he is a party directly or pecuniarily interested. For the purpose of this section, none of the following shall constitute a direct or pecuniary interest:

    (1) being a shareholder in a publicly traded company that is a party to the notarized transaction;

    (2) being an officer, director or employe of a company that is a party to the notarized transaction, unless the director, officer or employee personally benefits from the transaction other than as provided in clause
    (3); or

    (3) receiving a fee that is not contingent upon the completion of the notarized transaction.
    If you believe the notary did something inappropriate, you can report it to the Pennsylvania Secretary of the Commonwealth.
