How long will my signing take?

The length of your signing is dependent on a number of different variables, but the main being, type of signing.

Below are the approximate signing times, based on type of signing:
Refinance – 60 minutes
Buyer – 60 minutes
Seller/Cash buyer – 45 minutes

Just know these are just estimates and there are times that a signing can go well over the above time. It really depends on the client you are signing. Some people read everything and others just sign away. You never know what you are going to get.

What will I need to complete my signing?

Most signings will require one piece of valid identification per signer, in some cases, you will be required to provide two forms of ID per signer.

Common identification documents allowed by states for notarization include: state driver’s licenses and non-drivers IDs; passports; federal IDs such as military identification cards, state, county and local government IDs; and lawful permanent resident cards (often called “green cards”).
Some signings will require cash to close. This should be in the form of a cashier’s check, and escrow should provide you with the amount needed to be paid, prior to the signing. In some cases, a personal check will be accepted by escrow, for amounts below a certain cost.

How do I calculate the rescission date?

If a loan includes a rescission option, the borrower is given three business days to cancel; the third day is the rescission date. The rescission period includes Saturday as a business day, but Sunday does not count; this means that signings on Saturday and Sunday will both have the same rescission date.  Holidays do mess with this equation, so be cautious of them.
