A: The only "claim of right" I am aware of as far as that specific phrase goes has to do with income taxes. Maryland has issued an administrative release that details the process. Here is the link:


If your question involves a different subject matter, then you need to better explain what you are talking about rather than randomly referencing a phrase that can have multiple potential meanings depending on what area of the law you are talking about. Generally, in every subject matter, whether in real estate disputes, marital property disputes, contract disputes, etc., one party or another can have some "claim of right" to make. Using such a genaral phrase without context simply creates a guessing game as to what it is you are asking about. In general, Notary Public requirements would have to be specified in a regulation or statute, otherwise they are optional.
