There are diverse opinions about the subject. Ask questions, follow the money, who benefit the most and maybe you will have a decent answer to this proposal. Read notary forums; this is an extract of one comment:
“While we’re like a bunch of hens scratching piecemeal for crumbs in the signing field, we have witnessed the emergence of XYZ making millions of $$ off our backs after convincing the lenders we all needed routine background checks, testing, certification, and other baloney as a result of the CFPB, but did anybody see that coming? Did anybody see Snapdocs coming? Did anybody see the latest permutation of the coffee site coming? What else has some genius cooked up to get their very lucrative piece of the pie as the signing agent profession continues to morph before our very eyes … and which we had no inkling of until it landed in our lap? Might be the very guys behind this fee increase.”
The Notary fee is paid when a client goes to an office where the Notary offers her/his service. Mobile Notaries charge additional fees based on time involved, printing and car expense, company will not pay/risks, type of notarization, travel fees, time of the day or the month when notarize loan packages.
