Remote Online Notary (RON)
Sage Title & Escrow Services, Inc. offers Remote Online Notary (RON) services for U.S. Citizens in the United States and throughout the world. Our partnership with Pavaso provides one secure collaborative platform that streamlines the entire closing process.
Florida is one of the current 21 United States that has enacted the remote online notary law effective January 1, 2020, as defined in Chapter 2019-071, Laws of Florida and through the Florida Administrative Code, 1N-7001. This new procedure minimizes the risk of delaying the completion of a real estate transaction due to the possibility of documents being mailed to a party to be completed and then returning with a missing signature or a mistake in the notarization. The notary remotely supervising the execution of documents has the ability to identify and correct any mistakes before they become a hindrance to the closing.
Requirements needed for the process:
- Signers and witnesses are required to validate their photo ID through a trusted third-party
identity verification service. Signers must be able to receive and send messages to U.S. based
phone numbers to complete the ID validation. The ID validation text cannot be sent to third-
party messaging services. iPhone® users must use Safari to validate their ID.
- Individual emails addresses for each party signing
** Cell Phones are NOT compatible to use for these services
