Traditional and Electronic Notary from the Secretary of State’s Office

Allison DeSantis, Office of the Ohio Secretary of State
This presentation will discuss the specifics of the Ohio Notary Modernization Act and its implications on Ohio notaries. Senate Bill 263: The Ohio Notary Modernization Act overhauled Ohio’s notary laws by centralizing the application process to ensure consistent standards across the state.  Under the new law, the Ohio Secretary of State’s office will process and manage the notary application and renewal process in Ohio, as well as investigations and discipline.  Additionally, the law places a stronger emphasis on educating notaries throughout their tenure to ensure that all notaries remain aware of their obligations.  Finally, recognizing that transactions are moving off paper and to a digital format, the new law creates the groundwork for permitting electronic and online notarial acts.

10:30 am – 10:45 am
Break and Visit Exhibitors

10:45 am – 11:45 am
Underwriting Claims Chronicles
Mike Wypasek, Fidelity National Title Group
This session will cover the small nuisance matters that have the potential to turn into large headaches.  Why are $12,000 transactions more difficult than $12,000,000 transactions? What to look for, how to avoid traps and bottomless rabbit holes, how to correct a seemingly uncorrectable titles, how to know when they can’t be fixed, and when to not accept a transaction so that your sanity remains intact.  Board of Revision complaints, foreclosure traps, underwriting skills, people skills, communication skills and judgment skills-as well as good guesses-will be covered.

11:45 pm – 12:45 pm
Lunch and Visit Exhibitors

12:45 am – 1:45 pm
Liens from the Perspective of the Ohio Attorney General’s Office

The Title Desk/Payoff staff verifies if liens (State of Ohio and specific County Clerk of Courts) located during the title search belong to their client.  If the lien belongs to their client, the staff will advise if there’s a balance due and if there’s a balance, they will advise of the total amount showing due for the lien in question as well as all balances owed to the State of Ohio.
