Many title companies pay upwards of $150 to tops at $250 for Refi, Top of $375 for purchase ( however SCANBACK always on all purchases + you have to print YOUR OWN FEDEX label to ship back.\
So notaries, work a lot for little fee, or step up and refuse and outright shame the middlemen or title company that is low balling.
I had once a settlement lowballing fees. I gave them a blast of my pure rage and that seems to have rattled them. They eventually shaped up and offering a decent fee. $125 for a heloc, from $75.
Some lucky notary got it... But it happened because of my response.
That is what I want you notaries to do.
Have guts and let your rage at lowball fees be know is in the most raw form of response. Many of these lowballers will be shaken and shape up.
