This extensive program is available online. It teaches the information you need to execute the documents by a Notaries Public. All of our seminars and courses are taught by experienced providers in their fields. And this class is no different. Title agents, settlement officers and ASAs are the main sources for this course. Their experience and success in the business make this the best and most comprehensive course available for Notaries Public. They are successful as "Signing Agents" and share that knowledge and experience with you, unlike educators who only teach the subject. This is an excellent advanced Notary course.
The notary law prevents a Notary Public from giving advice or helping with the document completion. An ASA is taught to know the documents involved in these transactions.
If there is a question on the documents, the ASA CAN NOT provide the client the information. But they are aware of where that information can be found in the document package and direct the client to that information. If this does not provide the information the client wants, the ASA directs the customer to call the proper person who can give them ALL the information they need on their loan.
A Notary Public cannot complete or draw the document package. All documents are sent to the ASA via email or overnight delivery already to be signed and notarized. ASAs will not complete any document except for the notarization wording.
Insurance law requires a licensed title agent to "close" a loan. An ASA does not "close the loan", disburse funds, nor do they set up escrows or terms.
They are an independent "neutral party" to the transaction. They will however collect the funds required at the signing of the documents, which they will return to the lender with the documents via overnight delivery. At NO time will they take cash or have a check made out to them personally.
With the differences in classes, education and designations a Signing Agent can get lost in the shuffle. Most settlement services who hire Signing Agents want them to have more than the average education in this field. This course was developed by them and us to focus the laws effecting Notaries Public. And that means more work for the ASA.
