CHAPTER 87NOTARY PUBLIC
SUBCHAPTER FCHANGE IN ADDRESS
RULE §87.50Change of Address

(a) A notary must notify the secretary of state in writing of a change in address within 10 days of the change. To notify the secretary of state of a change of address, the notary should complete and submit form 2302 (Notary Public Change of Address Form). This form is available on the secretary of state web site at www.sos.state.tx.us/statdoc/statforms.shtml.

(b) The secretary of state sends all official notices, including notices of complaints, to the notary at the address on file with the secretary's office. Requests to obtain copies of or inspect the records in the notary record book are also directed to the notary at the address on file. Failure to change the address may, consequently, result in a revocation of the notary commission if the notary fails to timely respond to a complaint or to a request for public information.

(c) A notary public who removes his or her residence from Texas vacates the office of notary public and must surrender the notary commission to the secretary of state.
