NAR Approves Policy
Supporting Remote Notarization
The NAR Board of Directors at its meeting today in Boston approved a policy that puts NAR on record in support of laws, regulations, and standards that advance remote notarization. The policy calls for rules that focus on the completion of the notarial act, regardless of the technology used, and support the adoption of remote notarization across all U.S. states and territories, while protecting consumers’ personal information. The policy also urges federal agencies to facilitate the adoption of remote notary services across the mortgage system.
The policy came up through NAR’s Federal Technology Policy Committee.
