Hannah Williams Challenged us non-Realtors to explain how what we do effects/benefits homeowners and Real Estate Agents. In a nutshell no Real Estate transaction would be legally Valid without a Notary Public.LienImage

Even long before, possibly as far back as two hundred years before, your Real Estate transaction came to the closing table a Notary Public was involved in YOUR transaction.

Think back to your last Real estate closing. You remember the Notary Public notarizing your signature on the document but in reality he/she notarized your signature on many documents. Just like they did for the owner before you, the owner before them and so one all the way back to the original land purchase which may date back into the 1600's. History is notarized

Notaries in Early America: 1600-1800                In Colonial America, only persons of high moral character were appointed as public Notaries to certify and keep documents safe. Their contributions to colonial life are largely seen as the reason American business became a huge success. For example. While Notaries were held in very high regard during this time, life for Notaries in early America was anything but easy. Some were even killed for their involvement in authenticating official documents and record keeping as conflicting factions fought for control of the New World. (excript from National Notary Association)

If your State still requires the buyer to receive a printed copy of the Real estate Abstract it's fun to see "the history of the dirt" associated with your property. In example I can see the history of my "dirt" back to the Louisiana Purchase in 1803... and it's notarized with every transaction right up to my purchase of the land.

As you can see Notary Public's play no small part in Real Estate, in fact our part in the transaction is recorded for all of history where as the name of the Realtor involved may be forgotten by history in a relatively short matter of time. (no slight intended)

Ward County NotaryAt Ward County Notary Services we notarize signatures on many document that are not Real Estate related but the bulk of our business is acting as closers by being Certified Signing Agents and Mobile Notaries.

All that paperwork that gets signed and notarized at the title company often gets done by a Mobile Notary when the borrower has taken out a loan via an Internet lender like Rocket Mortgage and hundreds of others.

Just yesterday I closed a loan in Harvey ND. Minot to Harvey map

My trip saved the borrower and their spouse from each having to take a half day off of work to make the trip to the title company. My service also cost less then what the brick and mortar title company would have charged for the same service had they drove into town.

Ward County NotaryMobile Notary work is our mainstay at Ward County Notary services but we welcome you to our office at 201 Main Street South in Minot for all your notary needs. We are located in suite 116 on the main floor of The Colonial Building right downtown in Minot. Most people tell me they "Google" me and it brings them right to my front door, no hassles. And speaking of no hassles we notarize one and two page documents in our office at no charge for Active Duty service members (does not apply to family).

Morning Bob.

I do not know of a local title company, in our area, that doesn't have their own notary.  I carry my seal in my vehicle, just in case

James Dray our local title company will not do remote closings or closings outside of regular business hours. The title closings I notarize are for Internet lenders and also for borrowers who want the convenience of signing docs in their own home.

Wow, I guess we have a great area with lots of title company and my closer will ever drive a distant to do my closings.

Bob "RealMan" Timm  What a great explanation of a notary. In my State title, people notarize the papers.

Thank you for those kind words Hannah Williams . I've found most title people are Notary Publics.
