One of the best ways to hack your learning is to read and listen at the same time.  For this reason, we have begun transcribing select videos that we think will be beneficial to your growth as a notary.

If you listen while you read the text, you can increase your reading speed as well as retain more information.  This is because the contents are stored in different places in your brain.  This is a great way to digest valuable material.

[Katie] Hello and welcome to BlueNotary. My name is Katie and I am the Notary Relations Director and also a notary that is commissioned in the state of Florida. So today what I wanted to Highlight is something that can be scary to title companies or law firms if they are dealing with this, and I wanted to provide a solution.

The thing that can be scary is mail aways, that is in case anyone is from the general public and not really familiar, a terminology that most people use for when you have a package of a loan closing, or let’s say an estate plan that you would mail to a client and then the client would then have to either go to a bank if the bank agrees to notarize the documents for them, which they don’t always do or contact a mobile notary or find a notary.

In their general area. So some of the reasoning behind why that can be a scary thing is that one, it can be hard to find a notary in the area that the document is sent to, if it’s a rural area or if it’s just an area that is underserved as far as the abundance of notaries. It can be very difficult and time consuming for the clients to be able to get that document notarized.

The other thing is. That sometimes it is difficult to motivate the clients to get documents signed. That is just the name of the game sometimes for clients. And if it’s time sensitive, it is on the office to incentivize the clients to get everything taken care of in a short amount of time.

So the turnaround time can sometimes be a little bit longer than what it necessarily has to be. And that is just some of the things that you have to deal with. The other thing that can happen. That is a con of doing mail aways is that the document could be filled out incorrectly by a notary that, the signer might have found a notary that is in the neighborhood.

They got their commission and they sometimes use it, but they’re not super familiar with the documentation. So they miss something. So they miss. Let’s say saying something for the FERPTA or filling out a social security number or something like that. And then you don’t find it until the admin opens up the documents and sees it.

And then they have to do it again. So that is something that is very common. And I want to provide a solution, which I don’t know if you can guess, but it is remote online notarization. So remote online notarization is perfectly positioned to be the answer to a solution that has been something that is a pain point for a lot of different law firms or title companies or anyone that is dealing with mail ways for documentation that could be time sensitive or very important, which is For the most part, anything that needs to be notarized is important.

So what you can do is partner with a remote online notary or incorporate it within your own office. So if you have any questions… Feel free to reach out to BlueNotary.
