What is it like to be a Title Insurance Producer Independent Contractor (TIPIC)?

TIPIC informational sessions are held by Webinar monthly. Click here to view Webinar Schedule.

A TIPIC aka Notary Signing Agent (NSA)  is a Notary Public who is hired as an independent contractor by a "closing agent" to ensure that real estate loan products properly signed by the client, notarized by the notary and returned for processing in a timely manner. As an independent contractor, the TIPIC is responsible for filing the proper tax forms with IRS.

The Home Loan Process

1. The borrower initiates the loan by contacting the lender and applying for the loan.

2. The lender processes the loan, contacts the closing agent, and funds the loan.

3. The closing agent, an independent third party authorized by the lender, performs the closing duties on the loan and acts as an implementer for the borrowers, often hiring the Notary Signing Agent directly or indirectly through a signing service.
