On Monday, May 4, 2015, a loan application was completed by two local Piedmont, South Carolina residents. The loan package was on behalf of Suntrust Mortgage and Boston National Title.
Regularly, local parties will ask the question of why a title company would send a notary to a resident for something as simple as an application. The reason why notaries are sent, usually with the documents is this: notaries are, in many cases, seen as ‘document specialists’ who will have usually dealt with the type of documentation the parties are signing. Their main function is oversight. The notary is making sure the signer or signers are signing in the appropriate spaces, dating the documents correctly and not leaving items incomplete. This oversight saves companies and signers time and money, as they will not have to go back and forth for missing items.
