Pavaso Adds Remote Online Notarization to E-closing Platform

July 10, 2018

Pavaso introduced a new feature to its Digital Close eClosing platform that enables users to conduct remote online notarizations (RON).

Pavaso’s development of its RON tool provides its users the ability to conduct the entire closing (including notarization) using a single electronic portal through the Digital Close Enterprise eClosing platform. Currently, remote notarization is legal in Texas, Virginia, Montana and Nevada. Several more states, including Indiana, Minnesota and Tennessee, have passed laws or are expected to pass laws introducing remote notarization in the next year as well.

According to Nancy Pratt, vice president partner relations and government affairs for Pavaso, the addition of RON to Digital Close will empower users to notarize documents (where allowed by law) electronically and online—even when physically separated from the signer of the documents.

"RON is yet another powerful indicator that times are changing in the mortgage and settlement industries,” Pratt said. “Consumers are demanding more flexibility in choices – it’s no longer just a wish for flexibility in choices—they demand them. Pavaso’s unveiling of RON ensures that the consumer will now be able to experience the convenience, transparency and simplicity of a digital closing no matter where that consumer (or closing agent) might be situated.”
