Notary Blog: OOS-Initiated Last Will and Testament

This execution occurred on the afternoon of Wednesday, January 18, 2016 near the Atrium Elevators of Greenville Memorial Hospital. The signing needed the assistance of two witnesses, none of which could be the Notary Public, as the signing was for a document that would be traveling Interstate and required the viewing of

Notary Blog: Boarding, But Wait!

The frantic search was on for a Notary Public for a local resident.  The reason being?  A flight out-of-country was imminent for one of a pair of flyers.  Not wanting to miss their very important flight, the parties called on our services to assist them with their document. On the morning of Friday, December 22,

Notary Blog: 102-Page Buyers’ Package in 29601

Just so you know, most bank notaries and even choice other notaries in public offices that have not completed Signing Agent training for out-of-state documents are not aware of some of the Interstate laws; they may not complete a signing correctly. You can be assured that here at GreenvilleNotary.com, we have many years of training to ensure that the entire document process is taken care of.

Notary Blog: Broker Application in Simpsonville

“Why can’t I just send the documents I need to provide by mail and sign/apply online?” The reason…

Well, there is one main reason for this. Verification of true identity is very important to the companies involved with lending. In today’s technology-driven world, the process of online completion gets easier and easier, buuuuuuuuut…. so does identity theft. How would you feel if your father or mother applied for a home loan in your name? How would you feel if your niece or nephew did?

Notary Blog: Call by 11, There by 12

While visiting their loved one, who made an unexpected trip to the Greenville Memorial Hospital Emergency Room, then up to the Heart Institute Intensive Care Unit, one of a patient’s relatives made a call to GreenvilleNotary.com. While the Notary Public was on the way to take care of another situation, information was provided via text to get to the signers in urgent need of assistance.

Notary Blog: Traveling Signer? No Problem!

A signing originally set to take place at the Greenville-Spartanburg International Airport was rerouted to the FedEx Office Copy and Print Center located at 550 Woods Lake Road, Greenville, SC 29607 due to complications with another assignment slated for printing. Shortly before the print job was complete, the signer we’d scheduled to meet arrived with

Notary Blog: Private Signing at Memorial Medical Offices

The call rang in at 7:08 a.m.  Yes, here at GreenvilleNotary.com, we answer early calls, late calls, all hours of the day calls.  (I feel like I’m intertwined in a Dr. Seuss book.) Although traffic was rough, the challenge was met for some pretty rough and ready signers who were in a jam with documents

Notary Blog: Durable POA at GMH STAT!

Although Social Media is all the rage, so is the privacy of our precious signers in their time of need.  Although information about signing are provided on GreenvilleNotary.com, each and every customer is treated with kit gloves, and for those who wish not to disclose their particular situation to the public, it is NOT disclosed.  Never will we disclose information regarding certain transactions, including, but not limited to birth, death, nor accidents.

Notary Blog: Toasting Up to Texas Title

It’s great to work with new title companies.  Well, it can be.  Notary Public Signing Agents must be careful in their dealings with companies that offer jobs in our areas.  This is something essential that i teach when I have my seminars and consultations with local Notaries Public. Promises to pay and large signing fees

Notary Blog: MetroInspections Inspection in TR

It’s been quite some time since we performed an Inspection on behalf of Metro Inspections, based out of Glendale, Arizona.  Well, today was the day! The call rang in shortly after 3 p.m., and by 5 p.m., inspection of an undisclosed local business in Travelers Rest, South Carolina, was complete. From time to time, businesses

Notary Blog: Not One, but Two Local Business Owners!

Notary service on behalf of local residents is our game. However, considering that we just experienced Shop Small Saturday, local notary service on behalf of two local business owners is definitely a pleasure! Thanks to Betsy Tetsch (pronounced Tay-ch) of CanvasOne.com and Spencer Stanton of Stanton Photos for calling on GreenvilleNotary.com to service their need for

Notary Blog: Plundering Around Piedmont, SC

A late-night signing on behalf of a not-necessarily-on-purpose repeat customer was performed on Monday, November 28, 2016. The initial phone call for service rang in at almost exactly 9 o’ clock the morning of for the caller’s mother.  There was a predicament because the relative’s mobility was limited.  After a few moments on the phone

Notary Blog: Shop Small Saturday Discounts

It’s quite the ‘BIG’ deal as some transactions go into three-digit figures.  You might just want to take

Notary Blog: Marriage on a Carriage

I am looking to feature you. This has been quite a journey, none that would be accomplished without you, my fabulous Brides and Grooms!

Notary Blog: Crowne Plaza Jewels

Thanks to The Best Notary for providing fun assignments such as these. Well, fun to this Notary Public, at least.  Within these assignments, I have the ability to take photos of documents, scan and upload right from an electronic device ON-THE-SPOT! For today’s assignment, which lasted two (2) hours, several staff members assisted participants during

Notary Blog: On the Steps of M. Judson Booksellers

On the steps of M. Judson Booksellers, a handwritten letter and a typewritten letter were signed by two separate local parties, jurat/acknowledgment forms were completed for each, and signatures were notarized by a notary before attending a private event signing at the Westin Poinsett, Downtown Greenville.  Talk about fast signing, the transaction had to be

Notary Blog: Private Signing at St. Francis Downtown

A very private signing occurred at the Downtown Bon Secours St. Francis Hospital in the afternoon of Wednesday, October 19, 2016.  Thanks to a flyer distributed to his place of business almost two years ago, a local business owner finally had the need for a notary, and a mobile one at that.  No intimate details

Wedding Ceremony by Notary at Chau Ram Park | Westminster

An afternoon Wedding Ceremony was performed by Wedding Notary Public and Marriage Officiant Sonita M. Leak on Saturday, October 15, 2016.

Notary Blog: TranStar Title Seller Side Docs… DONE!

Although the title company called last-minute, we were still able to cater to their request.  Why?  Because at GreenvilleNotary.com that’s what we do.  We try our best to excel at Customer Service.  Here, Customer Service is always capitalized.  Treating our customers right and providing service higher than their expectations is where we’re at.

Notary Blog: Charleston Refugees Set on Their Marriage Date

Now that’s love!  Two very ‘meant for each other’ people were married in our beautiful city of Greenville, South Carolina on this morning.  I would like to extend a warm “Congratulations” to Lily and Noah for tying-their-knot on the shores of… Falls Park on the Reedy. Not wanting to take their chances of staying put

Notary Blog: Renunciation of Personal Representative Status

Noon on Friday, September 30, 2016, a local Pendleton Manor resident signed Very Important Documents.  Due to unfortunate events, the resident was unable to act on behalf of a relative who recently passed away.  Therefore, a Renunciation of Personal Representative Status form was signed before GreenvilleNotary.com Owner and State of South Carolina Notary Public Sonita

Notary Blog: Right After Work and Need Service?

Two signers that literally sought out after a notary public upon completion of work and after-school activities met with GreenvilleNotary.com Owner Sonita M. Leak at Panera Bread, 708 Haywood Road, Greenville, SC 29607. Needing two documents signed and notarized quickly after hours shouldn’t be a hassle.  If there is no additional travel for the notary involved, it

Notary Blog: Your Will Be Done – LITERALLY

Greenville Notary Service will not only provide you with the forms, but can also travel to your home, office, area hospitals, assisted living, rehabilitation centers and hospices to provide notary and document services to handle your private affairs.

Notary Blog: Out-of-State COT Transfer in Fact

So today’s signing was a little more complicated than most.  First of all, during this transfer of Certificate of Title operation, both signers were out-of-state residents (their home base was NOT South Carolina).  The registration process is to occur in the buyer’s state of residency. To top this signing all off, the Seller, whose spouse was also

Notary Blog: Service to Shut-In Resident in Easley

Notary service for those who are sick and/or shut-in is a delicate process.  Today’s signing was no different from the others we’ve seen where signers are unable to leave their home, an assisted living facility or hospital bed in order to have their signatures notarized on items.  Another issue for those signing may be mobility,

Notary Blog: Late Night Panering, pronounced (puh nār eeng)

A local Simpsonville couple needing paperwork completed and dated for today, September 19, 2016 and before a notary public called into our notary line shortly after 7pm.   Since the notary was already toward the Simpsonville side of Laurens Road, an agreement was made to meet somewhere between the signers starting location and GreenvilleNotary.com Headquarters.

Notary Blog: Private Marriage at Tate Plaza

Well, it was semi-private.  Although there were on-lookers, the couple chose to remain nondescript as their big shebang ceremony has not yet been planned.  They just wanted to get the paperwork side of their marriage out of the way and celebrate later. This quiet-as-it’s-kept exchange took place at Tate Plaza.  Why is it named Tate

Notary Blog: Sikes and Fake Writing at Spill the Beans

Yes, today, there was a lot of fake writing going on.  Walk into this very busy Downtown Greenville coffee-house and you usually see actual writing going on, but on this particular day, things were a little peculiar. Today, as  I walked into the back portion of the coffee-house I was greeted by sikes, cameras, videography equipment

Notary Blog: Old Republic Title Seller-Side in Fountain Inn

When to the call rang into the GreenvilleNotary.com lines, we weren’t prepared for what was about to happen. Usually for Seller, Buyer and Refinance transactions documents are emailed to the signing agent conducting the oversight for the transaction.  In the case of Refinance transactions, it may not be until a few hours before the signing is

Notary Blog: Meshing In With The Pokémoners at the Marriott

Earlier on Tuesday, August 23, 2016, an out-of-state resident called into GreenvilleNotary.com with the need of an After-hours Mobile Notary Public. Notary Service here is different because, if it at all possible, we will meet the need of signers at a moment’s notice.  It just so happens that  this time around, we were forewarned. The

Notary Blog: Private Signing on Behalf of OJs’ Crew Member

Yesterday was a busy day for us here at GreenvilleNotary.com, but we still had time to answer a call from our sweet friend Shakira, highly-regarded waitress at OJ’s Diner.  Although things didn’t line up for service to her or her family member on yesterday, Tuesday, August 16, 2016, service was certainly realized today shortly before

Notary Blog: There’s Nothing Wrong with an Explanation

Some are unclear of the difference between a notary providing information only for informational purposes and a notary telling a signer what to do or how to act.  Take this example: I sign on many documents party to oversight transactions dealing with loan applications and closing paperwork on behalf of out-of-state property.  In course-of-action, I

Notary Blog: Multiple School-Related Docs/Different Locations

On today, August 15, 2016, there were two school-related signings at two separate locations in the Upstate.  Those documents included two State of South Carolina Immunization Religious Exemption Forms and an Affidavit of Residence.  You can use the ‘Search’ field on the TOP LEFT tab to search for any term, word or phrase throughout GreenvilleNotary.com to find what you are looking

Early on the morning of Wednesday, August 10, 2016, the spouse of a sick and shut in individual called into GreenvilleNotary.com’s phone line seeking a mobile notary to assist with the signing of a Power of Attorney document later in the evening. For this signing, time was of the essence, as the signer was already

Notary Blog: Seller-Side on behalf of Statewide Document Services

A very last-minute signing was carried out at Noon on Tuesday, August 9, 2016 on behalf of Statewide Document Services. One thing we pride ourselves on here at GreenvilleNotary.com is punctuality.  Yes, to be late sometimes is human, however, we try our hardest to be on time, if not slightly early for most assignments and

Notary Blog: Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure for Illinois Property with a Twist

A Deed in Lieu of Foreclosure document was completed on behalf of two Anderson, South Carolina residents on the morning of July 27, 2016.  The situation for this signing was different than most because it was a two-party signing including a total of four (4) signers.  The original deed included only two of the parties,

Notary Blog: Dude, They Stole My Car!?!

In the evening of Friday, August 5, 2016, I received a very frantic phone call from a repeat customer who was at wits end.    Although we were in the middle of family happenings, service to this customer would still soon be realized.  One of the perks of being a GreenvilleNotary.com customer is that we

Notary Blog Limited POA for Former Co-Worker | Spill the Beans

Well what do you know?  The voice on the other side of the phone sounded all too familiar.  It sounded like a voice I’d heard before.  MANY TIMES BEFORE.  The young lady on the other end was in need of a notary RIGHT THEN.  After negotiating terms, pricing, and meeting location, the customer then asks…

Notary Blog: Private Documents | West Greenville Summary Court

Thanks to some quick thinking by both the signer and Notary Public, a fairly urgent signing was accommodated at the West Greenville Summary Courthouse amid the Notary’s business.  The signer needed a form signed as to verify her identity.  The signing was accomplished, and all was well with the world at 10:55 am on July
