At Chicago Title, we see ourselves as a second set of eyes for you to avoid issues, in particular in the area of fraud and forgery. We also, during these difficult times, want to ensure we are providing you with all of the information and assistance you need to continue to run your practice.
We have had a number of questions from you around the new rules being implemented by law societies around remote signing. Check with your Law Society, The Society of Notaries Public of BC, the Chambre des notaires du Québec for rules and regulations on verifying ID, the remote execution of documents and the use of technology such as video-conferencing.
The Federation of Law Societies of Canada has issued a document to guide the legal professionals, and you will find useful information on pages 11 & 12 about Verifying Identity - Click here to open the document.
