Most people who have a legal document which needs to be notarized visit their local bank, post office or courthouse for notary signing services. In many business and financial industries, however, having to visit public offices to notarize each document would be inconvenient and a waste of time. Having to visit a public office can also be inconvenient in sensitive legal matters or group transactions such as child custody cases or will signings.
In many business and personal cases, mobile notary signing services provide an alternative to visiting banks or public offices to have documents notarized. Instead, mobile notary public officers come to the location where the document and other parties are making the transaction. This allows businesses and individuals much greater flexibility, both in terms of scheduling and in choosing the location of the transaction.

Mobile notary signings offer a number of benefits in both personal and business settings:
Real estate transactions. Being able to close at any location is a huge benefit for real estate agents. Mobile notaries can provide the notary signing services necessary to close at the agents or clients location of choice, whether it be at a local coffee shop or at the home being closed.
Title and escrow transactions. Time is often of the essence when title and escrow transactions are taking place, and mobile notary signing makes it easier for title and escrow companies to have legal documents notarized on short notice.
Mortgage and lending transactions.
In fast-paced financial industries, a transaction which takes place several hours late can mean the difference between $1000s in interest rates or funding. Fast notarization of legal documents ensures lending transactions happen on time or ahead of schedule.
What to Look for in a Mobile Notary
Most mobile notaries are independently employed; hiring an independent mobile notary has both benefits and drawbacks. Independent public notaries have less overhead than notary agencies and their costs are often lower as a result; however, their location and therefore speed of service vary, and its difficult to determine their level of professionalism until they arrive to sign documents. Online notary directories such as 123notary.com, needanotary.net or notaryone.net can help you locate individual mobile notaries.
When choosing a notary, its important to take the following factors into account:
Credentials and certification. Are they a legally certified notary?
Location. How quickly they can arrive at your desired location?
Experience. Do they have testimonials?
How their services are represented online. A professional-looking website is a good indicator that their services will be professional as well.
Online notary directories such as 123notary.com, needanotary.net or notaryone.net can help you locate individual mobile notaries.
Mobile notary signing service providers may offer better quality control and more standardized service. Search online for national or local mobile notary services to find companies which have established reputations.
