Notarize and Title Resources Partner to Support Fully Digital Closings
Lenders and title agents will leverage Notarize platform to optimize the closing experience for customers
Notarize, the first digital platform to legally notarize documents online, and Title Resources, a leading title insurance underwriter serving independent title agents throughout the United States, today announced a partnership to expand online notarization for real estate transactions. Together the companies will enable lenders, independent title agents and customers to benefit from fully digital online closings utilizing Notarize platform offerings: Notarize for Mortgage and Notarize for Title Agents. With this announcement, online closings through Notarize are now available to nearly 265 million Americans across 38 states and the District of Columbia, including several new states such as Michigan, New Mexico and Wisconsin.
“Title Resources is pleased to support Notarize and remote online notarization efforts in all counties (and states) where we are licensed that will accept electronically recorded documents,” said Scott McCall, CEO of Title Resources. “Understanding the value technology can bring to all participants of a real estate transaction, our organization has prioritized investing in technologies like Notarize that streamline complex processes and deliver newfound convenience. By reducing paper, time and human error, and allowing customers to close anytime, anywhere, on their terms, we are empowering our agents to deliver an exceptional customer experience.”
Notarize created its real estate platform with Notarize for Mortgage, the first solution to enable lenders to conduct mortgage closings entirely online. Recognizing the integral role of the title agent, which is required to buy or sell a home, Notarize expanded the platform to include Notarize for Title Agents to enable title agents of all sizes to serve buyers and sellers online. With access to the platform, Title Resources agents now have the ability to:
- Offer an entirely online closing to buyers and sellers. Zero paper. Zero travel.
- Create online closings for things like all cash transactions, when only seller documents are needed to be executed online, or trailing documents.
- Walk clients through the closing package online, or have Notarize do so.
- Give the OK to Close, authorizing clients to execute the closing package with a Notarize notary.
- Reduce errors and ensure proper execution, putting an end to missing signatures.
- Save money and provide better service, accelerating every aspect of the closing.
- Eliminate printing, driving and shipping fees.
- Integrate Title Resources’ existing tools with the Notarize Mortgage API.
“The Title Resources management team has a deep understanding of the potential digitized real estate transactions hold,” said Adam Pase, Co-Founder & COO of Notarize. “We are thrilled to expand our partnership with Title Resources and Realogy to support their portfolio of services aimed at helping people buy and sell homes.”
The Notarize platform is available effective immediately for all independent agents appointed with Title Resources and for all transaction types, including purchase, refinance, HELOCs, and all cash transactions. Title Resources’ Agents will be expected to follow agent guidelines related to Remote Online Notarization transactions to assure the transaction was closed properly.
