Westcor agent closes purchase transaction with seller in foreign country using remote online notarization platform.

Maitland, FL, January 11, 2019 — Westcor Land Title Insurance Company announces that its agent, Momentum Title in Houston, TX has great success with its first purchase transaction utilizing remote online notarization.

Westcor agent, Momentum Title closed their first remote online purchase transaction with seller in different country by uploading documents for the seller to e-sign with an on line notary. Momentum Title’s seller was in France, and not coming back to the United States any time soon. The seller contacted the US consulate’s office in France, and quickly found out there was a 2 month waiting period to have the documents notarized. Westcor’s partnership with Notarize allowed its agent to complete the transaction entirely on line and be digitally notarized, the next day.

“This is a new tool we can use to give customers the best service and closing experience possible, and the process is so easy. We were able to go online and watch the video of the whole transaction”, said Brett Barbisch, Senior Vice President and Escrow Officer, Momentum Title. “It was a great experience for everyone involved and our seller was ecstatic.”

“Westcor agents continue to have great experiences with remote online notarization. We will continue to help our agents utilize the RON technology platform, to provide their clients and consumers the best experience when closing a real estate transaction.” Said Scott Chandler, Chief Operating Officer, Westcor Land Title Insurance Company.

Westcor has partnered with Notarize to enable closing agents to facilitate online notarization in 29 states. For more information about Westcor’s program visit www.wltic.com/ron .
