Getting documents in a timely manner and borrowers being informed regarding closing cost. Not all loan officers do a great job keeping borrowers abreast about the loan.

Getting paid in a timely manner. E checks are great. More than last minute notice when possible to do a signing.

Slow response time when you call in to signing companies with questions. This usually happens after you print the docs and review them to prepare for the closing meeting with the clients. Very difficult to get your questions answered before you leave for the closing. Difficult getting paid once the docs are shipped back.

Our shrinking pay vs. our soaring expenses. Sooner if not later most accountants will be advising their clients that they had better seek another profession :(

Getting paid in a timely manner, more clients and finding out about other jobs that I can do as a notary.

We need the NNA to support notaries by requiring annual background screenings of the signing servuce companies too. Too many of these companies pay very low rates, very slow and many have gone out of business owing notaries money.

When the new Closing Disclosure started, it was great. I was receiving loan docs 2-5 days in advance of the signing appointment. Now that things have settled down, I find that the I am back to receiving docs from title 2-3 HOURS before the appointment when the lending has advised that they released the docs to the title company 2 days prior to the appt. What has happened? Is someone going back to their old ways? Is it bad resource management from the companies? This is something that is most concerning to me.

All documents printed on 8x11. Do away with antiquated requirement of printing on legal sized paper.
