Notary Requirements

What are our Notary requirements?

  1. Current year E&O insurance
    • Must have $250,000.00 minimum coverage to meet our underwriters’ requirements. Please also consider that there are some lenders that require signing agents to have a minimum of $500,000.00 coverage.
    • For a notary company (multiple notaries under one policy), minimum is $1,000,000.00
    NOTE – you can obtain E&O Insurance from most any insurance carrier; Canyon Title cannot recommend a company, or direct you on obtaining the proper amount of E&O coverage.
  2. Current background check with fingerprinting. Need detailed report.
  3. Current notary certificate
  4. Resume
    Include years of signing experience, how many signings you’ve done and what types (refinance, purchase, reverse mortgage, etc) – rough estimate is fine.
  5. Notary Expectations acknowledged (on application)
