First American Remote Online Notary (RON) Advantage Program for Real Estate Transactions
We want consumers to continue to have a superior signing experience regardless of how they close their real estate transactions. To help achieve this potential, we've created First American's RON Advantage program for real estate transactions to help educate notaries about the RON topics described below.
Know the RON Rules
Each state's rules and regulations differ and signing in person is different from signing remotely. It's essential that a notary knows and complies with the rules during a signing.
Qualify a Real Estate Transaction
Underwriting requirements and state laws determine which real estate transactions qualify to sign using a remote online notary, and which ones do not. The program is designed to teach a notary how to qualify a real estate transaction using variables like property location, transaction type, documents, and technology.
Learn Knowledge-Based Authentication(KBA) and Identify Proofing Processes
KBA and Identity Proofing processes are integral parts of a RON signing and help reduce the risk of fraud. The program explains these processes and how they impact a consumer and the signing.
Use RON Technology
RON technology is new, so the program trains on the basics that apply across platforms to help a notary deliver a consistent consumer signing experience regardless of the RON technology used.
Because things can go wrong, the program works to prepare a notary for unexpected situations or technology challenges.
