Hello Fellow notaries, so I have worked with Coast to Coast as well, and I have negotiated with them my price once I would see that the document size is big which is over 70 pages and they would say it is less then 70 pages. They have adjusted the fee $10 to $15 depending the representative I have spoken to. If they didn't I have asked them to reassign the case and that happened twice. I have completed about 12 signings for $80 and $90. This is a low price but, signings were less then five mile drive, so it was okay. They are not sending me text messages anymore due to me negotiating the price all the time. And when they said why I took the signing if I saw that it was low price, I responded why are you not telling the truth of the size of the package and how many pages it will be, or how many signers are involved. Because, if there is one signer vs. four signers on one loan assignment, that means I will be logging almost the same information for each notarized page for four different people and they have to sign my book get thumb printed as well. That takes more than an hour, and even the $90 is not enough. So, they have adjusted the price. But they don't text me anymore because they have learned that they have a notary who is not letting them get away with their grid. One positive I had with them was they paid electronic check and very quickly.
My question is this, come January 2017 notary fee is going to be increased by CA Law to $15. What are we planing to do with the signing companies?
