I don’t know if you want to post this, but it happened to me: Snapdocs posted: $65 Reverse Mortgage application with 20 pages to fax back, I countered $85. turns out the print was 285 pages, plus ever Notary knows Reverse Mortgages are never easy at the signing table. I My fee got bumped up to $95. When I spoke to the Signing Company that I did not think it was right to low ball the fee on Snapdocs, they said it was just a baseline and Notaries could ask for a higher fee. My concern is that Notaries are accepting low ball fees. Seems like there should be some kind of industry standards..



  1. My minimum fee for an RM Appl is $125/$150 for the final. More if over 15 miles. I get it, too.

  2. I tell the scheduler up front RM’s are not fun and take a long time. 99% of my signings are 20 – 60 miles and I tell them my fee is $200. If they negotiate then I check the mileage closer for a reduced fee.
