Notarize for Business: Remove the mystery from notarizations

How do businesses use Notarize? Our business product consists of two key pieces: the business portal or API, where businesses can quickly create transactions and send unsigned documents to signers, and the signer portal, where the signer can connect with a notary and sign a document.

MERS is the legal system of record for identifying the Controller (holder) and Location (custodian) for the authoritative copy of a registered eNote and is the industry standard for this practice. These rules are enforced by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, who will not purchase electronically executed notes if they do not comply with this process.
