Highland Title’s unique Designated Signing Agent Program allows you to approve and sign settlement documents without attending settlement.
If utilized, you can appoint one of our real estate professionals (a “signing agent”) for the sole purpose of signing documents at settlement. A Highland Title attorney will discuss the settlement papers with you over the phone or by video conference. When you deem the papers acceptable, they will be signed by our designated signing agent, thereby relieving you from the obligation of physically attending settlement.
Lenders must approve the use of the signing agent, but we are confident that approval will be given in most cases. You may be responsible for paying a nominal fee to the signing agent.
