This is a reminder that the notarial certificates (acknowledgements and jurats) on your closing documents CHANGED on JANUARY 1, 2020.
For notarial acts on and after 1-1-20, the notarial certificate MUST state whether the signer personally appeared before the notary by means of physical presence or audio-video communication technology. The purpose of the change is to indicate whether the notarial act was done with the notary and signer in each other's physical presence OR if the notarial act was conducted through audio-visual communication. Said simply: the new law requires the notarial certificate tell us whether the signature and acknowledgement (or affidavit) occurred via remote online notarization.
You are registered with us as a user of E-Closing DT so you are getting this message, which is a little different than the message sent to our DoubleTime users.
This is your notification that E-Closing completed changes to all documents (i.e. general and custom). I urge you to review and be diligent about checking the notarial certificates on your documents to be sure all is correct.
Below is a link to a Word document with the new certificate forms. You can use this to "cut and paste" to update other documents you use in your practice that are outside of E-Closing DT.
