Re: Closing Agent

That's funny. I just had this same situation come up today. I had an I.D. verification document that asked for "Closing Agent Name" and "Closing Agent Signature". Knowing that I am NOT a Closing Agent, I called the LO. He said, "You ARE the Closing Agent." I wasn't going to argue with him about it, so I just completed the form and wrote, "Miss Jones, Notary Public" and signed my name and wrote "Notary Public" beneath my signature.

I had one of these a few months ago that I didn't sign because it said "Closing Agent." I got called back on it because I didn't sign. So now, I just call and ask to be sure. It seems like different companies do it differently. They should learn the difference between a Closing Agent and a Notary Public/Signing Agent. If in doubt, call and ask.
