|I'm a little curious about the Texas place-of-signing rule, perhaps because I have a bunch of relatives in the Metroplex, an niece who is a Texas lawyer (but who lives in CO), and I once inherited a share of a house in Fort Worth.|
I'm guessing the rule linked to later in this thread applies to lenders and maybe title companies, but not notaries. That is, if the notary does a signing at the principal's home, the notary is in trouble with the signing company, title, and lender, but not with the State of Texas. Have I got that right?
I'm also wondering what the rules are for a Texas property transaction where the principal is out-of-state signing before a non-Texas notary (like I did when I inherited the house)?
