you provide recording services?
No. FASS will arrange for the loan documents to be signed, notarized and
delivered to your desired location. Typically, the recording of the documents
is coordinated through the closing and/or title officer.
do I send the documents, and how soon are they returned to me?
The loan document package is either delivered to the signing location or
to the notary, ideally the day before the scheduled appointment. Loan documents
are returned to a predetermined location of your choice the following business
day, provided the signing appointment was completed prior to the overnight
courier’s final drop off time. Please note it is very important to include a
pre-addressed, overnight courier envelope in your original loan document
package. As part of our service, our notaries will drop off the package at the
nearest overnight courier location.
will I know when my appointment is set?
If you have an established FASSNotary login ID and password, you will be
able to track the status of all of your current transactions. If you order your
signings via facsimile, we will fax a confirmation to you. As always, if you
have any questions, please call our customer services representatives.
