What is the difference between a notary and a signing agent?

The role of a notary public is to verify the identity of a person signing a document that’s required by law to be executed as such. Notaries public are not responsible for reviewing the content of the paperwork or determining its legality; the act of applying a notary seal is simply for verification purposes. A notary signing agent has a more involvement with the execution of documents related to real estate.

A Notary signing agent is a Notary who is specially trained to handle and notarize loan documents. For lenders, Notary signing agents are the critical final link to complete the loan. A Notary signing agent is hired as an independent contractor to ensure that real estate loan documents are executed by the borrower, notarized, and returned for processing on time. Completing this critical part of the loan process enables the loan to be funded.
