How To Renew Your Notarial Commission in the Philippines based on IBP Baguio-Benguet Chapter.
When to Renew Your Notarial Commission?
You have to renew your Notarial Commission within 45 days before the expiration of your Notarial Commission.
What Are The Requirements To Renew Your Notarial Commission?
- Petition for Renewal of Notarial Commission
- Three (3) Specimen Signatures
- Three (3) Passport Size ID
- Three (3) impression of Seal
- IBP and PTR receipts for the current year;
- Certificate of Membership or Admission to the Bar
- Certificate of Good Moral Character from two (2) IBP officers of your chapter
- Certificate from Bar Confidant (No pending Administrative Case)
- NBI Clearance
- RTC Clearance
- Complete Notarial Transmittal and Notarial Book
Submit all requirements to your RTC Clerk of Court. You can get your OBC Certifcate from the OBC office in the Supreme Court. For those outside Metro Manila, you can authorize a person, through an authorization letter or SPA, to get one for you and pay the mailing fee so that the clearance will be delivered to you. Take note that it will take about 2 weeks before you can receive the clearance so get it at least month before filing your petition. To get a good moral certificate from your chapter, pay your IBP fees plus other required fees. Wait for your oath taking after you submit all your requirements.
Take Note that there is a prescribed form of notarial book which you can purchase from RTC Clerk of Court. You also need the Court approval to use loose leaf books in case you are unable to buy the prescribed Notarial Book. (It’s about Php1,500, more or less)
What Will Happen If you Failed To Renew Your Notarial Commission 45 days prior to its expiration?
You will be treated as a new applicant, hence you have to go through the publication and hearing again.
