What is an eClosing?
An eClosing (electronic closing) takes place when some (or all) of the closing documents are signed electronically.

What is remote online notarization (RON)?
A remote online notarization (RON) happens when the signer is not in the same physical location as the notary. In a RON transaction, live two-way audiovisual technology (such as a webcam) is used to complete a notarial act in accordance with Chapter 406, Texas Government Code.

How does remote online notarization work?
Both the signer and notary must access an approved RON platform where documents are uploaded. The technology must provide audiovisual capabilities set forth by Texas Statute so the notary and borrower can see and hear each other. Once the notary verifies the signer’s identity, the signer and notary both sign the document electronically, and the notary affixes an electronic seal.
