I have noticed, since the new year, that many servicing companies are changing their policies, which was in the agreement "these policy could/can change without your knowledge at any time" and it has happened. I know the quality of work I perform. So, although I not extremely worried, I don't like feeling threatened. I have had an experience where I completed a flawless signing, due to the time of evening and the holiday (mail/FedEx/UPS) closed, the documents where scanned immediately, within 15 min of completion, but the documents shipped 2 days late, the "signing service" per their agreement "states if the instructions are not followed exactly their would be a "reduction" in fee" however, the signing service came back stating the client was not happy and would not pay the invoice. Which meant, I did sign/notorized the documents, I did the work, but would not recieved any payment. ** I did block this signing service company located in Houston Texas**
Back to my original statement, I have noticed many more signing services stating "if there are any mistakes on the notary's part, there would be no compensation"
So, the work we perform, at anytime the signing service company could state their was an issue, and legal not pay you because it was in their Compensation Agreement you signed, 6mo, 12mo, 24mo ago they have the right to reduce fees or no compensation(changed) if the NSA makes any mistakes. I understand where the service company is coming from, I agree to reduction of pay, or the NSA being sent back out (at the NSA expense), however, if I place my signature and stamp on a document then I should get paid!! If I miss something, I agree to go back, on my own dime and fix my mistake. Anyway, just be careful if your working with signing services that have this *clause.
