Hey, do you have a real story about cross-outs?

“Yes”, said one of our friends who works for a signing company.

I had a closing many years ago that created a huge issue with cross outs, because we lost the rate lock.

The notary crossed out on the legal docs and had no idea that this was incorrect. I can’t think of anything dramatic, but I’ve had so many of these over the years. That is a rare occurrence now with so many Short Sales that the docs are faxed prior to the notary leaving so you can catch more mistakes.

  1. I always say up front, ‘if you make a mistake don’t try to correct it, tell me’I can’t tell you how many times someone made a mistake and then scribbled it. It happened to me Friday. They just don’t get it.
