What is a notary?
Notaries manage a wide variety of documents.
The main differences between a traditional notary and a signing agent are the types of documents they assist with and the salary.
Signing agents may charge higher fees because they handle sets of loan documents that are separate from fees for regular notarizations.
A loan signing agent is a notary who walks a borrower through a set of loan documents when buying or refinancing a home.
It is the agent’s job to ensure that the borrower has filled out the correct forms correctly while signing and dating the documents.
Then the agent legalizes the document, acknowledging its authenticity.
Lenders and title companies will hire signing agents as independent contractors to assist with this stage of the lending process.
Become a signatory notary agent
Although no official degree is required to become a signing agent, some regulations differ from state to state.
However, before starting the certification process, you must be commissioned as a notary public.
The process in most states is quick and easy and simply requires you to submit an application.
Only five out of 50 states have a mandatory notary public course, but you can take it online.
Additionally, only seven of the 50 states require a test.
For a list of state requirements, go to Loan Signing System.
Many state laws will not have additional qualifications or requirements for notaries who work as signing agents.
However, some mortgage finance companies will have laws and regulations that they are required to follow.
Since lenders, title companies and signature services must adhere to these regulations, they will set the guidelines for the notaries they hire.
The rules can vary, but National Notary said most businesses look for the following:
- A notary public in your state
- Loan signature training
- Pass an SPW-compliant exam and background check
- Your own signing agent supplies
- A $25,000 errors and omissions insurance policy
Are there any risks?
As always, keep in mind that a stable income is not guaranteed.
Some states have set maximum fees for the amount a notary can charge for their services.
It is important to do your research and approach any new service with caution.
Be sure to review what is required by your state and get the right training.
If you accept more difficult services, it comes with increased liability and risk that could expose you to legal action.
