Missing Riders to the Deed of Trust

It's such a small thing. It could easily go unnoticed.  I'm referring to those small boxes on the Deed of Trust that indicate if there are any Riders.  We take it for granted that everything is in order with the Deed of Trust.

Not always

I had a closing this evening for which the Deed of Trust was missing the Planned Unit Development Rider:

Planned Unit Development Rider check box on Deed of Trust 

I immediately contacted the signing service, who immediately contacted the lender.

Is it the notary signing agent's responsibility to check to see if all Riders are attached to the Deed of Trust?

Absolutely.

I had quite a busy day yesterday. Just one closing, but 4 calls for mobile notary work for the general public: two Power of Attorney notarizations, divorce documents, and a motor vehicle title. I had to refuse the motor vehicle notarization. … more
