What is a Notary Signing Agent?
The Notary Signing Agent is a specialist in loan document signing. Notary Signing Agents
gain with time a working knowledge of mortgage loans, loan terms and the various
documents contained in loan document packages. Notary Signing Agents help the borrower
execute their loan documents pertaining to signatures, initials, and completing some
information within documents when required.
The financial, mortgage and lending industries are all a part of the Notary Signing
Agent's area of work and basic qualifications. No federal, state or local governments
control the licensing or qualifications for becoming a signing agent. The
industries the signing agent deals with do set rules and regulations for completing
loan document signings correctly and the federal government has enacted legislation
concerning the proper handling of the borrower's personal information.
The Notary Signing Agent can answer only "What
questions" not questions that pertain to "Why".
After the signing is completed, the Notary Public notarizes
the appropriate documents in the loan package.
