IC 32-21-1-11 Instruments executed in foreign country; acknowledgment before diplomatic or consular officer

     Sec. 11. If executed in a foreign country, conveyances, mortgages, and other instruments in writing that would be admitted to record under the recording laws of this state must be acknowledged by the grantor or person executing the instrument and proved before any diplomatic or consular officer of the United States, duly accredited, or before any officer of the foreign country who, by the laws of that country, is authorized to take acknowledgments or proof of conveyances. If the acknowledgment or proof is in the English language and attested by the official seal of the officer acknowledging it, the instrument may be admitted to record. However, if the acknowledgment or proof is in a language other than English or is not attested by an official seal, then the instrument must be accompanied by a certificate of a diplomatic or consular officer of the United States attesting:

(1) that the instrument is duly executed according to the laws of the foreign country;

(2) that the officer certifying the acknowledgment or proof had legal authority to do so; and

(3) to the meaning of the instrument, if the instrument is made in a foreign language.
