Coming Soon: Custom Notary and Signature Blocks!

We are excited to announce another brand-new feature to make your E-Closing experience even more amazing! In just a few weeks, you'll be able to create custom Signature and Notary Blocks with just a few clicks. We love your great ideas, so please keep them coming!

 

Do I need to make my own signature blocks for each file?

Only if you want to! For your standard files, you'll continue to allow the program to make signature blocks in your documents for you. This new feature is for scenarios that break away from the norm, such as:

  • Add multi-tiered signature blocks for different entities, subsidiaries, or parties, including those that are not added to the file
  • Add multiple witness blocks for separate signing sessions
  • Change the notary verbiage

or for ANY OTHER REASON! This is your space to get creative 😊

 

Where will I find this new page?

In the file, open the Menu mceclip0.png, and under Documents, click on Notary and Signature Blocks.

It's easy! Just select a party from one of the Signatory Name dropdown menus to get started.

Do you already have a custom notary block prepared? Make customization even easier by copying an existing notary block and pasting it into the Acknowledgement or Jurat field to streamline the process further.

 

Need to make a change to your Signature Block, Acknowledgement, or Jurat?  Select the Edit Signature Block button (a/k/a pencil) to re-open the window and make any needed changes.

Do the custom Signature and Notary Blocks save in the system?

Yes, you have options too!

  • Copy from another file – When you copy a file, all the info you choose, including Notary & Signature Blocks, carry to the new file.
  • Create a Master File – A Master File is helpful for repeat business; use it with Copy File to pull in the blocks to a new file.
  • Use Name Match – Only want to copy the buyer or seller info from another file? Start a new file and copy their information from the Name Match feature on the Buyer/Seller Info pages. mceclip11.png
