Knee high weeds

Filed under: General Stories — admin @ 11:45 pm

I wrote another blog article recently about going into bad houses or neighborhoods for a loan signing. Sometimes you might feel that you are at risk. One Notary got bitten on the sleeve by a pit bull. That is a felony and nothing to joke about. If you can’t control your dogs, then don’t have them.

But, what if the house has knee high grass and weeds in front of it? That is a sign of dysfunction. Should you go into the house and risk it? Should you take a peek at the inner condition? Or should you just call the Lender and ask everyone to meet you for a frapuccino at the Coffee leaf?

Neglect is a bad sign and should be taken seriously.



  1. I would call the lender and have the borrowers meet me in a public setting. If it’s knee deep outside I can only imagine what inside looks like.

  2. I have had to make decisions based on similar circumstances as mentioned above. If I am uncomfortable with a signings surroundings, I ask the signors to come to my car trunk area and we sign outside the house. Some places can be kept so dirty I don’t feel comfortable sitting down on anything. Its really been an eye opener working as a Notary and seeing how people live.
