Real Estate Notary Services
You’re Buying The Property — Now Seal The Deal
Realtors know how many documents are involved in even the most basic property closings. So does anyone who recently bought a home. Of course, some of these documents require certification by a notary.
As with any legal document, it is essential when closing on a property to be confident that all parties signing the documents are those who will uphold them. This is where the real estate notary plays a key role.
Depending on the state, either a notary public or a notary signing agent must be present during a property closing. Ask your realtor which is the case in your state.
Real Estate Legalities by State
One benefit of working with a realtor is that they will be familiar with the legal technicalities of the state where they work. For instance, some states require that a “notary (or real estate) attorney state” mandates both an attorney and a signing agent to be present during closing. They include Connecticut, Delaware, Georgia, Massachusetts, New York, South Carolina, South Dakota, Vermont, and West Virginia.
At a closing, notaries and signing agents, like those at CYNA Notary, ensure and attest that the parties involved have been properly identified, signed where needed, and are who they claim to be before certifying the signatures.
