Both notaries and loan signing agents are able to sign certain legal documents as a witness the parties signing said documents are who they say they are. Common documents that require a notary signature include auto title transfers, trusts, power of attorney, custody agreements, leases, contracts, and more.
Loan signing agents go through additional certifying processes to narrow their focus on home loan documents. It’s similar to the difference between a general practitioner and specialist. Both are required to go through the same undergraduate and graduate medical training, but the specialist continues with further education to focus on a specific area of medicine.
