During the state of emergency, Origin Title and Escrow, Inc can provide notaries, witnesses, and be the closing attorney via video conferencing. As a buyer or seller, you can sign your closing documents with the notary, witness, and attorney present via video conferencing. Normally, the closing attorney also acts as the notary or witness.
You will need an internet connection, web camera, and microphone. Most phones and tablets have everything necessary.
Signors will receive the documents via FedEx or hand delivery before the scheduled signing time. We use Zoom pro and we share our screen to go over each document. We will send the Zoom invitation the day of closing. Please do not sign any documents before the video conference.
Origin Title will provide blue pens and a return FedEx envelope and label to return the completed documents. You will need to find the nearest FedEx drop box to deliver the completed signed documents. Once we receive the documents, we will sign as the notary, witness, and closing attorney.
Everything is still done with ink signatures, so this is not a true e-signing with electronic signatures.
