Notary Public vs Notary Signing Agent
While both roles involve notarial acts, Notary Signing Agents have additional training and expertise in handling real estate transactions and loan document signings. A Notary Signing Agent is a specialized Notary Public focusing specifically on facilitating loan document signings in real estate transactions. They are hired by title companies, lenders, or signing services to ensure proper execution, notarization, and timely return of necessary documents.
If you are not dealing with loan documents, you will likely only require Notary Public services.
