Pandemic leads to growing acceptance of eClosings: News source

The coronavirus pandemic has led to wide-ranging industry acceptance of eMortgages, eNotes, and digital closings, according to a recent article in National Mortgage News (subscription required).

Even before the pandemic, eMortgage transactions were on the rise. In April 2019, the MERS eRegistry saw 8,338 eNotes registered; by March 2020, that number had shot up to 24,519, an all-time high.

Since then the momentum has swung even more toward eClosings. Since March at least 20 states have taken emergency action to allow temporary remote online notarization (RON)—considered crucial in the age of social distancing—joining 23 states with permanent RON laws on the books. At the same time lenders are rushing to implement systems that utilize RON and electronic documents. 

DocMagic Chief eServices Executive Brian Pannell noted that DocMagic can have clients set up for hybrid eClosings (including eSign and ancillary documents) in as little as 24 to 48 hours.

“Key to implementing a smooth e-close process is ensuring the lender's workflow is well thought out ... which we hold our clients' hands in doing," he told National Mortgage News. "That includes ensuring all docs are e-enabled and leverages a single-source platform with both hybrid and RON capability. We can implement a completely digital and fully paperless total e-close in 17 days, and e-enabled dynamic docs is critical to that."
