Filed under: Notary Fees & Pricing — admin @ 10:34 pm

Just out of curiousity, the market has changed since we wrote our various pricing oriented blog tutorials. Those were written from 2010 to 2016. We want to know, what do you guys charge now?

Extra Miles

Regular signings for general notary work.




  1. I charge $100 for a refi or purchase. Usually $75 for seller and for misc. Docs $50. I will not go out for less than $50. But then i am a seasoned signing agent of 17 years

  2. My base fee is $110.00 for standard Refi and purchases with lenders, Add $15.00 if fax/scan backs
    $125.00 for VA and RM Refis
    105.00 for Applications due to Faxbacks most always required
    I am very rural and have a additional 30 mile round trip if I have to fax/scan back any documents
    Other assignments are priced based on task involved, but Like Mary,if I have to leave my office It will be no less then $50.00
    I have held a Notary Commission since 1982 and Have been involved in some way shape or form in the Real Estate sector since 1979 from application to closing table. I totally enjoy Notary Signing Agent work, but it is also a part of my business so must be profitable

  10. What? People I was doing signings for 75, 85, 90, 100, 110, 150, 200, and I got another company and I am doing 200 a couple one only for 135 but I did like 4 for 250 so I’m starting to like this ones for 250 so I decided I won’t do it anymore for less than 200 so mu lowest now is 200 because I have a lots of other work to do that pays me good so I don’t have to do any signing for less

  11. What is the difference between refi docs and purchase docs other than a Deed.
    Is charging more for a VA package justified?

  12. I charge $175-$200 for a refi or purchase. $125-$150 for Seller. Idk why so many charge so little. Just ask for what you’re worth. You’ll be pleasantly surprised when you get it.

  13. I charge $100 for a refinance, $150 for a reverse, $75 for a seller package, and $60 for a loan modification. My minimum call out fee for one document is $50, which includes ($30) for notarization and ($20) travel fee. I also charge $60 per hour waiting fee for deposition oaths, jail signings, witness fees at hearings, court or trial. I am a Louisiana Civil Law notary with 32 years experience who travels within a twenty-five (25) mile radius of my office.

  14. I don’t feel like it is worth leaving the house for less than $100, $125 with scans. The farther from home the price goes up. I feel like if we all continue to keep the price at $100 or more we can begin to have a floor for pricing. It really doesn’t cost the title or signing company any more because it eventually falls to the signer to pay the fee. The difference of $25 or $50 is lost in the sea of charges.
