A little more than a week ago I accepted a closing assignment from a company that I had never worked with before. The closing was on March 20th.
I received the check yesterday, on March 29th -- a little more than a week later.
Getting a check a week later is usually what one would expect from a title company. But this was a signing service. Many signing services have a reputation for taking a long time to pay. And for not paying well. There are notary signing agents who refuse to work with signing services for these reasons.
You have to think with an open mind.
That's what I did with this company. And it's what I try to do with all companies. Because I know that there are many good ones out there. It's like anything else in life -- everyone deserves a chance.
And it works both ways. Notary signing agents should have a chance to atone for any mistakes that they have made, just as signing services should have a chance.
Because, as quiet as it's kept -- no one is perfect.
