Notary Blog: Two New Residents at Haywood Mall

Often, I receive emails from different people regarding what we CAN and CANNOT do as Notaries Public here in South Carolina.

Notary Blog: What I’ve Learned in the Past Week

I could, in my position as a Notary Public, provide a service that is convenient, quick and professional in manner and conduct my activities as if it were strictly that. However, being the person that I am, I would feel as if I were doing a family a disservice by not upholding the supportive role I hold dear in empathizing and providing condolence when a family feels as though no one understands what they are going through.

Sometimes the monotony of a hospital room or an assisted-living apartment creates a depressing environment, and if I can be that person to cheer them up for that very moment, it was all worth it.

Notary Blog: Repeat Signer at Hughes

Notary on the road and you need something notarized? Not a problem. Well, usually. A signing occurred close to Noon on Monday, December 19, 2016.

If he missed his chance to get the document signed, the result would have been absolutely no good.

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

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
