Pavaso's remote ink-signed notarization (RIN) solution* provides an optimal alternative to notarizing real estate closing documents in person. Pavaso’s technology delivers an audio/video web-based notarization option, that can be utilized in accordance with state emergency mandates and requirements.
The process is designed to be simple**
The signer(s) securely completes Identity Verification and Knowledge Based Authentication (KBA) requirements
The signer(s) review each document electronically on Pavaso and can ask questions before it is wet-signed
Record a signing by audio/video, capturing any number of document pages that may need to be presented, including signature pages for wet signing, as the duly authorized notary observes
Using Audio/Video teleconferencing, capture where necessary the assembly and sealed packaging of wet-signed documents, for delivery to the notary, who through their wet-signed notarization that follows, acknowledges the signed documents as observed during the Essential Notary signing session
