remote online notarization


The traditional way of getting documents notarized is known as In-Person notarization. The signer and the notary meet physically (face-to-face), the notary then verifies the identity of the signer and proceeds with the notarization.


However, as technology grows stronger there are other forms of notarization, one of which is known as Remote Online Notarization.


Now, just imagine being able to go through the entire notary process from the comfort of your home. This is where remote online notarization comes in handy.


Look below to find out more about Remote Online Notarization (RON) and how you can use it.

What is a Remote Online Notarization?


Remote Online Notarization involves remotely notarizing a document using technology. To be more specific, this includes the use of an identity verification process, electronic signature, and other audiovisual equipment to obtain a legal signature on a legal document. 


What used to take hours can now be completed in a matter of minutes, anywhere you are.


With RON, Notary Signing Agents can securely notarize legal documents without either party needing to ever leave their living room. 

Remote Online Notarization Advantages:


Online Remote Notarization has a lot of advantages, however, we decided to list the most important for your closing process.

Advantage 1: Convenience:


With RON, you can hire a licensed notary anywhere, anytime, and get documents notarized in a blink of an eye. That means that your work schedule, lack of transportation, or even location does not matter. 

Advantage 2: Reduction of Fraud: 


While traditional notarization involves looking at ID, Remote Online Notarization checks IDs through a secured system which requires the signer(s) to answer personal questions about their background based on their credit history. This significantly increases the probability that the person signing the document is who they say they are. 

Advantage 3: The Enforceability of the Document 


Since RON has an audit trail associated with each transaction along with a tamper-evident seal, you can be assured that the document will be usable in any legal situation, even if you need to go to court.
