HousingWire, July 28, 2022–Bill Conroy
The U.S. House of Representatives passed a bill late Wednesday creating federal minimum standards, which would allow notaries nationwide to perform remote online notarizations. Mortgage Bankers Association President and CEO Robert Broeksmit applauded the House action, noting the legislation creates minimum standards for RON that are in harmony with the Mortgage Industry Standards Maintenance Organization RON standards, the MBA and American Land Title Association’s model RON bill, as well as existing state laws.
