Occasionally I will get a request from a borrower to notarize a document for them that is not part of the closing documents.  No problem. I do it at no extra charge. I had such a request last night.  It was actually for the borrower's mother. First I completed the closing.  Then I offered to nota...
I did something last week that I have never done as a notary public -- I refused to notarize for someone. Refusing notary service is a serious matter.  Notaries face the possibility of discrimination lawsuits for refusing to notarize if they don't have due cause. But first, there is a difference ...
I got a call this morning from someone in Colorado Springs requesting mobile notary service. It's Sunday and they didn't know where else to turn. They needed a letter notarized, authorizing the release of a vehicle that was impounded.  The vehicle was in a different state.  It was a simple, hand-...
In the topic: Statement of Information: beginning, middle, or end?, I mentioned that I prefer to put this document at the very end.  Mostly because it's time consuming, and I can use that time for reviewing the loan documents. But there are certain documents that should be at the very beginning, ...
I learned some valuable lessons when I was in the Army.  One of them was: 'CYA'.  I didn't think much of it at the time.  My thoughts were, just do what you're told and you won't have any problems. Well, there are times when it's not enough to do what you're told. A notary signing agent can do ev...
I got a call around 6:30 yesterday evening.  It was from a title company here in Colorado.  They wanted me to do a short-notice eSigning. The signing agent who was scheduled to do it had a medical emergency. Unfortunately I couldn't do it at the time because I was actually sitting in a closing. T...
Back in December I posted the topic: Signing the 4506T. I gave examples of how I have the borrowers sign this document. There are still differences of opinions as to how this document should be signed.  Some signing agents have each spouse sign each other's 4506T. This evening I did a closing and...
If there is one loan document that can throw a monkey wrench into a closing, it has to be the HUD Settlement Statement. I was scheduled to do a closing today in Colorado Springs at 11 a.m. It is now 11:49 a.m. as I write this.  No, I didn't do the closing, then come back to my office to write thi...
I had a closing on Friday for which cash was due from the borrower in the amount of 43 cents.  I put a red sticky tag over the amount to remind myself to collect it from the borrower.  When I got to the table I showed the borrower the HUD Settlement Statement, and pointed out that he has to pay 4...
I rarely get a call to do a signing on a Saturday evening, but I had one yesterday.  It was a RESPA signing out in Fountain, Colorado. Usually the signing agent who does the RESPA signing gets the call to do the closing.  For the most part, it's a good idea.  I learned a lot of things from that s...
