For various reasons, you may not be able to attend your title closing in person. And while some people are able to give someone power of attorney to represent them at settlement and sign the paperwork, that’s not always an option.
For instance, what if you live in one state and are buying a home in another? In this case, you may want to consider a remote closing. At Pruitt Title, we’re proud to offer remote closings because our motto is: we close anywhere, anytime.
A remote closing works exactly as the name describes. Before your settlement, we will determine your signing location preference. It can be out of state or out of country. So if you find yourself on vacation in Hawaii, for example, we will arrange for a notary in our network to meet with you to go over all of your closing paperwork. We can even Zoom in your Loan Officer, Realtor or favorite Title Processor. They will take care of notarizing the documents and shipping them back to us.
At Pruitt, we often use Notarize software to notarize documents electronically. Most lenders, however, will not allow this new technology for their closings, so it’s typically reserved for seller-side signings and cash deals. We can also use this software to sign power-of-attorney documents and deeds.
A remote closing can be a convenient way to close, but make sure you understand everything you read before you sign. One advantage of attending an in-person closing is the benefit of having a title company professional explain everything as you go and answer any questions you might have.
