Most states require a background check to qualify for a notary commission.
However, it is also recommended to get a regular background check from an approved vendor (such as the National Notary Association), because getting business as a notary loan signing agent is difficult without an updated background check.
Throughout the loan signing process, notary loan signing agents are exposed to, handle, and transport documents that contain highly sensitive and personal information about borrowers, buyers, sellers, and other parties to the real estate transaction.
For this reason, many banks and title/escrow companies request that notary loan signing agents pass a background check in order to prevent mortgage industry fraud and ensure the individual hired to carry out the closing process is trustworthy and credible.
So, while not all potential business clients require it, Loan Signing System recommends adding a background check to your notary loan signing agent qualifications.
We recommend NNA Background check and exam because it is one of the most widely accepted background checks in the industry! The background check and certification is an additional cost through the NNA and is not included in the Loan Signing System course.
We provide instructions and direct you to resources within the course on how to save money on their certification and background check (saving you several hundred dollars)!
