What Is A Signing Agent?

A Notary Signing Agent (NSA) is a notary public who is specially trained to handle and notarize loan documents. For lenders, signing agents are the critical final link to complete the loan. A signing agent is hired as an independent contractor to ensure that real estate loan documents are properly executed and by the borrower, notarized, and returned for processing, on time. Completing this critical part of the loan process enables the loan to be funded.
