Topic: Loan Application

We are just doing notarizations, not taking the actual application. It is not applicable to a Notary, at least in Texas.

Topic: Loan Application

I just had an offer to do a loan application. Under the SAFE ACT anyone handling these must have a license. Why are signing services not aware of this new law and asking notaries to do this?

Topic: Great to be here.

I’m relatively new to the notary signing industry, although I’ve had my notary commission for 18 years. I’ve worked in the real estate industry for 26 years, and I did work as a Escrow assistant for 3 years. I have always loved being a receptionist and an administrator. I lost my full time job almost 2 years ago and decided it is time to take the bull by the horns and do my own thing.

I look forward to reading and sharing information on the ‘Discussions’ page. I always find Notary’s very informative.

Thank you and have a great and successful career!

Topic: Jail Notary

I’ve never had that experience but from what I’ve read, particularly on, it can be time consuming. I recommend you visit NotaryRotary and use the search button to look up jail signings.

Topic: Gosh it's quiet here

I’ve noticed very little activity on several forums lately, not just Notary Depot. Could be the lack of refis, but I think it’s more than that. I think it’s an overall unease about where NSAs will stand in regard to financial activities with consumers. I receive updates about the CFPB activities, and find them interesting in general.

Anyone else have an opinion?

Topic: American Signing Connection

This company advertises on their web site of payment to notaries within 60 days. Do not believe it as I have one over sixty days. They will not respond to emails or voice messages.

If you look at other notary boards several notaries have been documenting their experiences. Read and heed!!!!!

Topic: Minor Traveling Permit?

Make sure your state laws allow you to type and provide these and it’s not considered UPL.

Topic: Minor Traveling Permit?

I love these notarial acts. You can type up your own document’s and you don’t even need to fingerprint.

Topic: Notary Optimism

Chicken Little is wrong. The sky is NOT falling! Often, a notary can be the one bright spot in a day to impact many others.

Yesterday I was called to notarize documents for a hospice patient. I was left with the patient while the social worker rounded up family members of other patients to serve as witnesses. This patient has no family members in the area.

Upon completion, I touched her hand as I prepared to leave. She gripped my hand tightly and smiled. It was an acknowledgement, gratitude and so, so much more! I left and drove for an hour in unrelenting 90 degree heat without my air conditioner for my refinance appointment in another county. The refinance client was gruff, saying he works nights and has no life (around 62). Just had heart surgery….single, needed a friend.

I smiled and left. I was too drained to care about giving time to someone who couldn’t appreciate all that he has going for him. He’ll be okay. The hospice patient can rest comfortably, knowing that her sister in Washington DC will handle her affairs. The industry will be fine – as long as we remember that we’re not here to save it. We’re here to provide a public service.
