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.

Topic: Florida Closings

My fiance usually ends up being the 2nd witness 99% of the time. It is strange that the borrowers are never told that they will need to have a witness present at the closing. Not a problem for me….I always get the job done.

Topic: Tax Question

You don’t have to report expenses, but you do have to report income. Reporting them together will tell if your business has a loss or a profit. To only add your notary income to other income without reporting your expenses which goes on a Sch C does not allow you to recoup your expenses. So if your tax preparer didn’t do that you got cheated. You may have ended up paying additional taxes or not receiving the refund you should have gotten. To uclanotary. If your expenses exceed your income that may have resulted in a refund depending on your situation. I am a nationwide tax preparer as well as a notary.

Topic: Florida Notaries

Meant to add – page 39 of our manual outlines the specific procedure to follow for this. It is my belief that the bill clarifies the authority and extends it to POA’s AND the initials required on some forms.

Topic: Florida Notaries

A new bill, which will be effective immediately upon the Governor’s signature, will extends our authority to act as a designated signer to the signing and initialing of a Power of Attorney.

New Florida Law: SUMMARY: HB 841 clarifies that a Notary may sign a power of attorney on behalf of a principal who is unable to sign by using the procedures in F.S. 117.05(14).
BILL: House Bill 841
EFFECTIVE: Immediately upon being signed into law by the Governor
SIGNED: May 30, 2013

Topic: TitleLogic will not pay me

I did a job for Racine last March 15, 2013 My billing was sent through on completion. I sent a letter when the billing went unpaid for 60 days. I followed up that week with a request to provide me with a status on payment from Rebecca Wood. Rebecca replied that she sent my payment to her accounts payable department. However, I was never given a status for payment. The invoice said that she was to receive my billing, but she chose not to handle it herself. It will be ninety days this Friday. I consider waiting this long as unacceptable. Please provide me with an immediate payment on my invoice. Thank You

Topic: Notary Revocation

By the way, I should have added – they HAD to give you some kind of prior notice that this action was pending. Unless a criminal matter is involved where immediate revocation is called for, I would think some kind of formal notice of a pending action is required from your SOS to you.

Topic: Notary Revocation

You should contact your SOS immediately and ask them what happened.

Apparently, from what I can gather, you notarized a document without the signer appearing in front of you? Perhaps someone filed a complaint against you…somehow the SOS got word of this alleged action and reported you.

Why you’d be revoked for acting as an Agent for Service is unclear to me. Depending on your state notary laws, it may be something you’re not allowed to do…really not sure here.
