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

Notary signing agents undergo specific training so they can notarize complex loan documents, especially mortgages. Notaries usually witness and notarize less complicated identity confirmation documents.

Unlike traditional notaries, signing agents can earn additional income by charging for their labor alone. While notaries usually make money from signing fees, signing agents may charge for the cost of notarization as an additional fee on top of their work guiding a client through the loan contract.

When does my signing agent commission expire?

Signing agent commissions are generally tied to notary public commissions. Check your state's commission renewal schedule to learn more.

Do I need a background check?

Because loans contain sensitive financial and personal information, most employers require a yearly background check. This expectation is common for real estate transactions, where borrowers trust signing agents with their financial assets to purchase a home. Background checks are not required for standard notaries.

We offer a Level 1 background check:

  • Criminal Check
  • National Criminal Database
  • SSN Trace
  • Sex Offender Search (National)
