2008 Legislative Changes (California Assembly and State Bills)

AB 1168:CHANGE AFFECTING SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBERS IN RECORDED DOCUMENTS

A new law in Chapter 627 of the Statutes of 2007 prohibits the recording of a document that contains more than the last four digits of a social security number. This law states that unless otherwise required to do so by state or federal law, no person, entity, or government agency shall present for recording or filing with a county recorder a document that is required by any provision of law to be open to the public if that record displays more than the last four digits of a social security number. For more information, see Government Code Section 1 7 9 8 point .8 9.

AB 886: CHANGE IN ACKNOWLEDGMENT FORMAT

Assembly Bill 8 86 Changes the format for a California Acknowledgment. This law in Chapter 399 of the Statutes of 2007 eliminates "personally known" as an element of identification on Certificates of Acknowledgment. For more information, see Section 1 1 8 9 of the Civil Code.
