What is a Notary Signing Service?

What is a notary signing service and how does it differ from a normal notary?

The Notary Signing Service

A notary signing service performs many notary signings. It is not just a one off, a company like Sunshine Signing can perform from one to thousands of notarizations for our clients. We do it by leveraging a roster of tens of thousands of notaries spread across all fifty states.

While a single notary may be available for more than one signing, there are times they may not be available. In these instances a signing service can plug the gap by providing another professional notary in a limited time frame.

This allows the signer, be it an individual or a firm like a title company, to ease the worry of having to fill any gaps for notarizations. For institutions this is extremely important, as time is of the essence.

Time and Money

Notary Signing Service

For business, a signing service can save them both time and money, while increasing productivity. When faced with dozens or thousands of signings, a signing service only makes sense.

With nationwide access and the ability to perform both mobile and online signings from anywhere, a notary signing service ensures every notarization goes smoothly. These signings can happen in the office, at your local coffee shop, on a job site, or any other place that is convenient.

Any business owner knows time is money. And the freedom a notary signing service provides saves a company time.

The Notary Signing Service Saves an Employee

Too many companies have an employee dedicated to finding notaries. They open an online rolodex, making call after call, trying to arrange all of their signings. This not just wastes effort, but costs the business too much effort.

A signing service like Sunshine Signing handles all of that for you, in an efficient manner. This again saves a business both time and money. Yes, we do keep coming back to that, time and money.

Sunshine Signing is more efficient than your own dedicated employee. Why? Because facilitating notarizations is all we do. It is our business, our sole dedicated purpose. Why waste effort when you have someone who can do it all for you in a blink of an eye.

Will Mobile Notarizations Become a Thing of the Past?

Remote Online Notarization (RON) is gaining prominence and transforming the notarization landscape. But, it’s unlikely that mobile notarizations will become entirely obsolete. Both mobile notarizations and RON offer unique advantages, and their coexistence serves to cater to different needs and scenarios.

Here’s why Mobile Notarizations will not go the Way of the Dodo:

In-Person Transactions:

Will Mobile Notarizations Become a Thing of the Past?

There are instances where physical presence is required due to legal or regulatory reasons. Mobile notaries play a crucial role in facilitating in-person signings, especially when parties must be physically present to provide signatures, answer questions, or fulfill specific legal requirements.

The Importance of Credentials and Vetting

The demand for mobile notaries has increased drastically in recent years, and for good reason. Mobile notaries play an essential role in the signing of legal documents, offering convenient services by traveling to a signer’s location, providing the required notary services without the struggle of traveling to a notary or title office. 

Credentials are Important

However, with an increase in demand comes the need for diligent background checks and credentials to ensure your mobile notary is properly vetted. This article will address the importance of background checks and other necessary credentials a mobile notary should have in order to conduct your signing.

We all can see the significance that a mobile notary plays in our legal system today. They are not only responsible for verifying the signer’s identity but confirming the signer is entering the transaction willingly and knowingly, while ensuring all signatures, initials and notarizations are completed accurately. Wills, powers of attorney, real estate documents, could not progress without the knowledge and expertise provided by a notary.

Credentials and Vetting Your Mobile Notary

However, while a mobile notary is significant and convenient for your signer, there are risks to hiring just any mobile notary. Random hires lead to under qualified notaries who lack the basic training and credentials, let alone the experience, to perform their jobs efficiently and accurately. This puts not only your client, but your company at risk for receiving fraudulent services or having errors on legal documents. 

How Sunshine Protects Your Interests

The first thing we review here at Sunshine Signing is the notaries background check, which is easily the most critical credential a notary can provide. While most companies do a soft check on their notaries, we find that these can be lacking in critical areas and require annual background checks in order to stay up to date on our notaries and their eligibility to serve your clients.

A background check will reveal any criminal history, including motor vehicle and any listed offenders. You are already sending a stranger to your client’s home, the least we can do is ensure that notary is a standup citizen on paper. Any notary convicted or under suspicion of fraud, forgery, or identity theft should not be hired as they pose a significant risk to the client and the reputation of your company. By following industry standards for all notaries, regardless of states, we maintain a consistent level of expectations and service requirements for all notaries. 

Are They Insured?

Errors and Omissions Insurance. This is a staple credential in the mobile notary industry as it offers not only the notary financial protection against any errors but your company as well. Knowing that your notary is insured in case of any costly errors, while we always strive for none, offers a peace of mind and added layer of caution. We are all human and make mistakes, and in the legal world those mistakes can be layered in fees that stack up quickly. 

Among other creds such as bond and commission, Sunshine takes the time to personally vet and interview each mobile notary. This gives us an opportunity to gauge their professional experience, reputation through business references, and verify any additional training they may have had that will benefit the quality of the signing. 

Credentials are crucial aspect of hiring a mobile notary. Notaries with proper credentials have undergone the training and meet the state’s requirements to become a notary public. Verified credentials provide clients and signers with the assurance that their mobile notary is knowledgeable and above all else, safe. 

Our goal here at Sunshine is to provide a trustworthy, qualified and experience mobile notary each and every time.

Three Reasons Neighbors Use a Notary

It might sound a little weird, but here are just a couple of reasons neighbors might use a notary. Notaries aren’t just for business, they are for individuals as well. And there are some pretty good reasons two neighbors might need a notary, or a mobile notary to protect themselves.

Hold Harmless Agreements

They sound harmless, but they keep everyone protected in a case of liability regarding a neighbor’s activities.

A hold harmless agreement is a legal agreement between parties that states that one party will not hold the other liable for risk. Hold harmless agreements typically apply to physical damage or risk.


Okay, a couple of quick examples.

Hold Harmless for Potential Work on Areas That Cover Both Properties.

I want to do some work on some trees that just happen to be on my property line. I don’t plan to go on my neighbor’s property, but it is possible I will. Or maybe I know I will go onto their property.

Should my neighbor’s, and their home insurance company, have to take the risk that I will get hurt on their property?


When working on anything on the property line it is best to get a hold harmless agreement, notarized by a notary like one from Sunshine. This way we can protect ourselves not just against injury, but also our personal property. There will be no disputes during or after this job.

Both sides have come to agreement and know what is expected.

Why Neighbors Need a Notary

Hold Yourself Harmless Because of Kids Toys

Or let’s posit another hypothetical scenario. You just built the most awesome skate ramp for your children, and of course every other kid in the neighborhood wants in on the action. Who wouldn’t.

But, injuries happen, from cuts and scrapes all the way to full on broken bones. And forbid one sneaks on without proper safety equipment, like a helmet.

Your kids won’t think it is cool, but it only protects you. Instead of a looming disaster it becomes ride at your own risk. Your neighbor takes on the liability.

The Party of End All Parties

This is all me.

Maybe your neighbor throws a huge party, maybe for a real big football game. And you give him access to use your street, maybe a little grass before the sidewalk.

Then someone runs over your flowers, another hits a decorative fence, while a third razes some of your grass to bare ground.


A Hold Harmless is for both parties. You can give someone right to park, without giving up the right to protect your personal property. If people fall outside this agreement, your rights are protected, just like your neighbors are by letting them park there in the beginning.

I know some of these seem insignificant, but anything becomes significant when it involves legal ramifications.

Don’t leave things to chance.

Please remember we are not lawyers. None of this is meant as legal advice. We recommend you speak to an Attorney in your are to determine laws in your area.
