REMOTE ONLINE NOTARIZATION
Ohio Fidelity Title Agency, LLC has two licensed professionals in our office who are authorized to conduct Remote Online Notarization “RON”. Conducting a RON closing allows the signer to be virtually anywhere in the world while signing closing papers, including documents that would be traditionally required to be notarized in person.
In order to complete a RON closing, a computer is needed that can run Google Chrome Browser, have a camera enabled system and a microphone. A smartphone
with a Google Chrome Browser as well is recommended to scan in your identification.
The recent change to the notarization law makes Ohio the 10th state to recognize remote online notarization, empowering anyone to notarize documents online from anywhere at any time. Senate Bill 263 took effect September 19, 2019.
Not all transactions will qualify for the use of RON. Please discuss this possibility with your escrow officer, as there is an additional charge for this service of convenience.
