The American Land Title Association (ALTA) and the Mortgage Bankers Association (MBA) have collaborated together to prepare model legislation that would provide the framework for any state to adopt an online remote notarization process. This model legislation was developed with input from an ad-hoc task force of ALTA and MBA members and was also exposed to comment from ALTA and MBA committees. Additionally, key policymakers and other independent groups provided input. Both ALTA and MBA are working with their member companies as well as state and local association partners to advocate for the provisions of this model.
