Add Contacts and Collaborators to your Closing Team to keep them updated!
Contacts are non-signing individuals added to transactions to notify them of progress and to assist borrowers. Your borrowers can reach out to their Real Estate associates before or during the notary meeting without leaving the meeting or navigating away from their documents.
Collaborators can receive transactions and participate in the process. Collaborators can be added to any eClosing. Collaborators include:
- Title Agents
- Escrow Officers
🎯Primary Audience: Lenders
Nice to Know
If you don't want to share your Closing Team Contacts with your customers, simply leave the Visible to Signer box unchecked. Your team will receive transaction status notifications, and they will remain hidden from your borrower. Signers only see contacts checked off as Visible to Signer.
Notarize Closing Operations
If contacts come over pre-populated, Notarize does not edit, delete, or add contacts unless the Lender requests them to be updated.
When the Notarize Closing Ops team adds collaborators and contacts manually, we add the contacts listed on page 5 of the Closing Disclosure.
Collaborators can be Title Agents, Escrow Agents, and Attorneys. Their participation appears in the transaction audit log. Collaborators can:
- Review & edit documents
- Add notaries
- Set the closing date
- Change the closing date
- Create their own account in the Title portal (Attorneys can do this on lender-initiated collab transactions)
