Remote Online Notarization
A digital closing done by Remote Online Notarization (RON) allows signers and notaries to be in separate locations. Digital signatures are used to authorize and finalize the transaction. RON utilizes a secure audio/video connection, usually via webcam, but the connection still includes the authentication steps of a traditional notarization. Transnation Title has already partnered with Pavaso, Notarize, Enotary Log, and Closing Exchange, all respected industry providers, for the secure platform needed to conduct such transactions.
It’s important to note not all transactions will qualify for a RON closing. However, if closing remotely interests you, and you can answer “yes” to the following questions, please contact your local office. To learn more about Remote Online Notarization (RON) watch the Talks with Transnation video to hear Sharlene Shineldecker talk more about what RON means and how it works.
