What is a Notary Signing Agent?
A Notary Signing Agent is a Notary who is specially trained to handle the signing of and notarization of loan documents. For lenders, Notary Signing Agents are the critical final link to complete the loan. A Notary Signing Agent is hired as an independent contractor to ensure that Real Estate loan documents are executed by the borrower, notarized, and returned for processing on time. Completing this critical step of the loan process enables the loan to be funded.
While Certification is not required by law, many companies prefer to contract Certified Signing Agents to ensure Consumer Financial Protection Bureau compliance requirements are met.
Why Does a Notary Signing Agent Need a Background Screening?
In order to guard borrowers' private financial information, the mortgage industry requires all persons involved in the lending process to undergo background screenings. Lenders in turn instruct Title Service Companies to ensure that everyone with access to mortgage documents has been screened. This requirement applies to everyone handling loan documents including Notaries who act as Signing Agents.
