Re: Do you notarize other documents as a courtesy for BWRs

Depends on how well compensated I've been for the amount of time invested with them. If it's just a signature or two at a well-paying assignment for a good client, I'm happy to do it for free, if I have the time. However, if I'm doing a signing at my minimum fee that is at or stretching the limits of the size of package I'll accept for that fee, it's highly unlikely I'm adding a freebie on top of that.

When asked, I'll generally suggest we get the work at hand finished first, then I'd be happy to take a look at it. Not only does that give me the chance to make sure I have enough time left for something extra after finishing their loan docs, but it allows me to see how much they're asking of me before I address the fee issue. It also sets the expectation that it will be a separate transaction, whether or not I decide to charge anything extra.

It may depend on the area, but I've found that most people are happy to pay the per signature fee. I've made it convenient for them (vs. going to UPS or a bank, etc.) and they didn't have to pay a travel fee.
