Written by Certified Notary Signing Agent, Marriage Notary and Owner of GreenvilleNotary.com Sonita M. Leak on November 1, 2017. These types of signings can be tricky.  On the morning of Monday, October 30, 2017, a local party called into the lines of GreenvilleNotary.com with her situation.

Notary Blog of Sonita M. Leak, CNSA | This Week is Dimming Down, Don’t be a Clown and Don’t You Frown

An example of a dire situation is when a person is admitted into ICU.  There are tracheotomies, ventilators and other harsh conditions, such as paralysis that sometimes impede a signing when a person has been admitted into this ward.  Hospital signings themselves can be tricky – maneuvering around HIPPA regulations (you cannot ask hospital staff if someone has Sound Mind), navigating the halls and room structure and sequestering family members are all a part of the job.

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?

Sonita Leak’s Notary Blog: Signing Interrupted…

A signing originally set to take place at Coffee Underground was uprooted due to traffic from the pageant that took place over the weekend. Although we attempt to keep our signings as private as possible, we had no choice but to take this one outside. Today’s document process involved four individuals, with assistance from two

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: 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: 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.

The Notary Needs a Witness | Noma Square® Starbucks

“A private signing situation ran into the dilemma of finding a witness.” The paperwork set forth was sensitive in nature for two South Carolina residents. Paperwork such as this is usually NOT witnessed by neighbors or family members. Why? When it concerns private matters, sometimes it is best to keep those who are in your

Notary for Ocwen South Carolina Non-Hamp Loan Modification | Headquarters

The ball didn’t get rolling for GreenvilleNotary.com until after noon.  Then everyone and their mother seemed to call for notary service.  Ok, so we exaggerate much, however, it was quite a busy afternoon/evening.  The day started with a call for service around 1:15pm for two local residents in need of a notary public that could

Thank you to Inscribing Pursuits, the return customer and of course the coziness of the Red Room at Coffee Underground for an elegant signing experience.

Notary for Quitclaim Deed for State of Tennessee Property in Moore, SC

Who calls for a notary at 5:30pm for an evening notarization that MUST happen TODAY to have the documents shipped off and returned by Friday?  Loan-Closers.com did! Go to Moore, South Carolina? Were we able to accommodate them?  Why, of course we were!
