Notary or Signing Agent: Why it Matters for Your Real Estate Closing

A notary public is an individual appointed by a state government to serve as an impartial witness when important documents must be signed. They verify that people are who they say they are and ensure the integrity and authenticity of the signing.

A notary signing agent, sometimes called a signing agent, is different. A signing agent’s job is to obtain necessary signatures and verify identity, but also to walk the signer through the loan signing process. A typical loan package contains between 100 and 150 pages.

Without the trained eye of a signing agent, errors at closing would be commonplace and real estate transactions would fall apart with regularity. Signing agents specialize in real estate loan document and transfer signings. It’s their area of expertise.

We Choose the Best Agent for Your Transaction, Not Who’s Available

When you close with BNNServices, your transaction is always placed with the best signing agent for the job — not just whoever is available.

The process at BNNServices is to assess the order, the client, and the product being transacted to ensure to ensure it’s being handled by a professional with relevant experience and that there won’t be any knowledge gaps, language barriers, or missing credentials. Once the order is accepted, we “touch” each and every file 8 or 9 times to ensure the signing moves forward free of delays.

Our signing agents are trained to carefully review instructions several times to make sure they understand what’s required, and then promptly ask for clarification if necessary, avoiding the most common signing agent errors that cause delays in real estate transactions.
