Did you know that all signing agents are notary publics, but not all notary publics are signing agents?
Here’s the difference: Loan signing agents are notary publics who are certified to assist the lender in guiding the borrower through their loan documents. They might help answer any questions the customer has about their loan, whether it’s for a vehicle, a home, or a business.
Notary publics, on the other hand, don’t have that additional certification. That means notaries don’t have the ability or expertise to provide information to their customers, so their job is to only confirm the parties’ agreements and witness signatures for legal documents. I’m certified to do both.
