It's a good skill knowing how to roll
By  Cheryl Elliott on 8/17/19 10:37am

Tried to enter completion on app. App frozen. I called it in instead.

Waited all day for docs and when they finally came, legal pages were cut off. It was beer Friday, apparently. Everyone gone for the weekend? We will see. Supposed to sign today.

Finally the last signing of the day, borrower lost ID at the movies.

Honestly, this biz is not for wimps.

Loan Processing Center Louisville, KY
By Luckydog on 8/17/19 8:17am

Even the best of us get it once and awhile. I was thinking this was Title Processing Center and took this closing for a seller side in June and now I get to practice my collections skills. They have their payment schedule which is worse than worse, okay... according to them check to go out from Aug 5-10th for 2nd half of June, and now late with that. David did return my calls and their whole system is making a duplicate addresses on their checks! Can you imagine that?? ...and now have to manually void and reissue new checks. That's a new one.
Anyway, what tactics did anyone use with them, and will they eventually pay? TIA

Giving out defects to hiring entity
By  Cheryl Elliott on 8/16/19 2:42pm

I had a signing last night at 6pm. I arrived early, so I tried to contact the borrower, but the number was a Framingham MA number and no voice mail or AS. I'm perplexed. This assignment was already confirmed with the borrower, I needn't bother with another confirmation, I was told. Borrower is expecting you.

I'm sitting in my mobile notary command station looking at my phone, the borrower's phone number, and asking myself "How can this be?" I then think well, the area code numbers might be transposed, so I tried 805 rather than 580 and sure enough, the borrower answered the phone.

Hello, I'm sitting in front of your house. I'm a little early, would you like to get started?

Holy #$%^ he says, I'm at a restaurant having dinner. I'm so sorry, I completely forgot we were signing documents tonight.

That's okay, where are you, I'll meet you there so you can finish your dinner with your friends.

Okay, he says. So I drive up the road about a mile to a very nice Italian restaurant where the borrower is sitting with his fiance whom he met on, I learn.

He is so embarrassed, he asks if he can buy me dinner. No thanks, I said, I'm going to the Chumash Indian Casino and have dinner with my sister. He says, at least let me buy you a glass of wine. We had a great time, and he apologized profusely through the entire session.

Well, okay.

It all worked out swell. I had a piece of Italian bread with aioli and a pinot noir, and one hour later, I was on my way to meet my sister. It really helps to be a clairvoyant in this business

Not every disconnect works out so well. It was after hours, no way to get a human being on the phone.

So, how do I give the hiring party a defect? Does any one know?

Lola Williams strange request
By  Anita Edwards on 8/15/19 9:46pm

On Monday this week I received an email from Lola Williams. Nothing identifying her or who she is with. She asked me if I could do a closing in MN next Tuesday. That's all. I replied back that I didn't know....where and what time. I've not heard anymore from her until today. She sent me a link to download documents with lots of instructions on what I'm supposed to do. Without opening the link, which I can't open, only copy and paste, I still know nothing about the closing itself. No pricing was ever discussed. What would you do? I'm baffled. I've been a victim of computer hacking before and am extremely leery of opening this link.

I am having one of "those" weeks
By Luckydog on 8/15/19 12:04pm

I had 2 closing cancellations to be rescheduled this week. They reschedule when I cannot do them as booked. THEN an hour later the time that I couldn't do it, cancels on me too, and then lose that original closing, plus the one that just canceled, so now I sit and have nothing at that time. GRRR I know it goes with the territory, but a prime example of when it rains it pours. So frustrating...out of our control.

Documentary Transfer Tax Title of document question.
By Susan/CA on 8/15/19 11:48am

I know it's always better to get a signature when in doubt however, I would appreciate your feedback on this document. I had a signing package with a Quitclaim and PCOR included which of course I had the signers sign. There was also a document that is :"Titled Quitclaim Deed Title of Document" and it has the Documentary Transfer tax with the box checked "Computed on Full Value of Property Conveyed, or" then it has a signature line below which says "Signature of declarant or agent determining tax." In the past I have always been told this is not to be signed by the borrower. What has been your experience with this document? Thank you all so much!

Signing Trac/ Beware- Ridiculous Wait Time to get paid!
By Michele Guerin on 8/14/19 10:54am

I've worked with Signing Trac quite a bit, especially when I first started out doing signings last fall. In the beginning, I was paid somewhat 'promptly'- within 45 days. SINCE then- the jobs I've done with them have been longer and longer to get paid.
I'm currently due for two jobs I did - May 24, 2019 and June 1, 2019.
Their payment policy states 45-60 days. Well, I'm-74 and 82 days out, respectively and STILL WAITING! Both jobs were Loan Modifications for Mr. Cooper/Nationstar.
I've contacted the Signing Trac billing dept via email (the only way you can contact them) several times and get assured my payments are being processed this month. (August, now August 14th!) .
If you just want to do some work and get your money- 'whenever' as a surprise bonus for yourself- that you earned months ago- take the jobs. Otherwise, let them be. They take WAY TOO LONG to pay.
If the creditors I owe were waiting 74-82 days out, the interest I'd be paying would be outrageous. Too bad I can't hold Signing Trac to paying me interest on my money they are still holding.

Latest variation on a scam?
By JanetK_CA on 8/12/19 6:36pm

I'll bet I'm not the only one who received an email from "Patricia Birdsong" who claims to be in Spain and has a package that needs to be picked up tomorrow. (It was from a gmail account. And I'm sure a UPS store would just hand it over.)

The tip-off is that the UPS store supposedly holding the package is about 100 miles away from me - with hundreds of notaries in between... Wink My guess is that if I responded (I did not), I'd get a link with "more info" in reply.

Trying to get a little info for a friend before she speaks to an attorney?
Her Husband walked out leaving her with 2 kids & 2 dogs.
Now, a few years ago, they did a refi. @ that time the they were both on the Mortgage as required by New Jersey, but only the husband was on the Note.
Now the husband wants to forgo any more mortgage payments. Is the wife responsible for the Mortgage.?
Can this be held against her credit?

like I said in the beginning, I am just looking for some info so i can direct her.
PLEASE, only serious reply's.
Thank you.

RULONA oath/affirmation certificate, non-verification
By  VT_Syrup on 8/10/19 12:21pm

The versions of the Revised Uniform Law on Notarial Acts suggested by the Uniform Law Commission, and adopted by VT, require a notary to issue a certificate for all (almost all?) notarial acts, including oaths and affirmations. RULONA also provides short-form certificates for many, BUT NOT ALLl, notarial acts.

Although they provide a short certificate for a "verification under oath or affirmation" they don't provide one for other oaths, such as oaths before oral testimony, or an oath of office. Has anyone from one of the states that has passed RULONA created a certificate for these other oaths?

compromised. I called the number...spoke with a foreign speaking call center operator who said "how can I help you? and what is your SSN?" You're kidding right, I responded.

"If you ever call me again, I'll have you arrested. Hold on while I patch in my local police chief."

Now this is wierd
By  Cheryl Elliott on 8/9/19 3:05pm

So a couple of years ago, Michael Crowder left WFG in Westlake Village, CA to work for TIMIOS, whom I once did a lot of work for until their fees dropped significantly, even before the advent of Snapdocs in 2012.

I get this broadcast email from Michael, but it bounces back after I responded that I could not take this job. I'm thinking it's phishing and not from Michael at all.

so annoying
By  canotaryhere on 8/9/19 11:59am

did a signing for a correction of a mistake by title 3 weeks ago. They had put incorrect info on original docs that another notary had done (not the notary's mistake). Anyway I get an email that said a signature page was missing. I wouldn't have notarized a signature that wasn't there nor would I have omitted a page. I do however attach a loose acknowledgement form to the signed document as the SOS requires. Anyway, the document that was sent to do the correction on doesn't even have the same signers names on it. It has 2 completely different names. Emails and phone calls to company have received no response.
