CHATTANOOGA, Tenn. (6/24/13)--SIGNiX, a preferred business alliance of Credit Union Resources and a provider of secure digital signatures, has facilitated the first remote, digitally notarized deed in the U.S.
Credit Union Resources is a wholly owned subsidiary of the Texas Credit Union League.
An American couple living in France used SIGNiX digital signatures and web conferencing to notarize a property deed in Virginia with the Circuit Court of Alexandria.
"With this sophisticated e-notary process, our customers had their documents notarized while they sat comfortably in their home in France," said Timothy Reiniger, cybernotary for the transaction and CEO of Trustmark Certification Services Inc. "This eliminated the need for them to travel all the way to the American embassy in Paris, which would have been a full-day trip."
The Commonwealth of Virginia is the first and only state in the country to authorize this method of online e-notarization, which allows signers to get documents instantly notarized by a Virginia notary from anywhere in the world.
SIGNiX's technology is being used by Trustmark Certification Services to apply digital signatures and an electronic notary seal to e-notarized documents in compliance with Virginia's legislation.
