Administration of Oath of Office

We administer oaths of office for newly appointed or renewing Notaries and others required to take an oath IN GREATER LOWELL. If you live elsewhere, there are many places around the Commonwealth where you may take your oath.

If you wish to take your oath here at the Registry of Deeds in the Lowell Justice Center, please call 978-322-9000 to make an appointment. You must have paid your $60 fee and received your Notary Certificate signed by the Governor before you may make an appointment.
