A Notary complains about the instructions

Filed under: General Stories — admin @ 9:11 am

A Notary complained to me that he received a package where the instructions were on page four. This Notary makes it a habit to always read the instructions. But, I guess he doesn’t read between the lines. As a Notary, you really need to quickly scan all of the pages of a package to make sure there are no mystery signers who don’t know they need to be there like the evil sister in law or mother in law.

What would you call it if a mother and law and brother in law needed to sign the Deed of Trust, Note RTC, TIL and HUD? That would be the inlaws signing the legals. Very punny.

In any case, if you don’t scan all the documents there might be surprises. As a mobile notary, you want to minimize suprizes by being prepared. Also, you should ask lots of good questions when confirming the signing. Check the date, time, location, how the ID reads, if there are payments due, APR, rate, numbers on the CD, if they have time for the entire signing which could take 90 minutes, and if all the people who are supposed to be there will be there.

Be prepared and only you can prevent notary disasters!

  2. What’s worse is when instructions on how to set your printer is on page 68.
