Acknowledgment & Acceptance of Deeds
It's an interesting thing that I'd never before noticed, but Robb Ryder brought to my attention, that most Contracts have an Offer, a Meeting of the Minds, Valuable Consideration given, a Written Contract, and Both parties, knowingly, willfully and with full disclosure and consent, sign the contract.

What is strange is, that in most land / mortgage contracts, the closing documents are one sided. On a loan, the one making the loan does not sign that he is loaning anything. The one receiving the loan, signs his future away on the dotted line, with the notary signing as a witness that they acknowledge the buyer's signature.

On a Contract to Purchase land, The one making the offer for land signs, and the notary signs as a witness that they acknowledge the seller's signature, but the buyer, never signs that they accepted the offer! This of course is standard operating procedure, and legal, but it does not have all the elements of a lawful contract on it.

As the Assignee by Contract, as evidenced by a clear chain of title back to the Severance of the Sovereign's conveyance of Public Lands into Private Hands, one may wish to Acknowledge their acceptance of their Assignment of the original Land Patent or Grant, by Contract, and have a Public Notary witness your Acceptance of this assignment, and then record this with your Certified Copy of your Patent from the Land Office, along with your Public Notice in the Newspaper giving public a chance to challenge with higher title than yours, and the Newspaper's Affidavit of Publishing with tear sheets out of the newspaper; then your complete  Chain of Title back to the common source, severance of the sovereign into private hands - in the County Records.

Certificates of Notary's Commissions are basically a 'Authentication' by Secretary of State- for their acknowledging their Notary's Signature and their Commission.  I use these when needed on an important document, so there can be no argument that this document is authentic, even much later.(Triple verified:1) your sworn affidavit. 2) Notary's witness to your affidavit. 3) Secretary of State's witness and authentication of their Notary.

Are you the Owner or the Tenant?  Check the wording in your sales/closing instruments.  Most states give you 3 years to rescind your signature on your loan paperwork. This is different transaction than your sales conveyance / Bill of Sale - to transfer title in exchange for valuable consideration.
Some new closing instruments do not give full disclosure verbally, but have you listed as the "Tenant", instead of the Owner… Grantor / Grantee, notwithstanding on both.
