eview of Minn Stats: . § 358.645, 358.66; 358.646, 507.0941 to 507.0948 Review of Minn. Session Laws, 5th Special Session, Chapter 4

In order to ensure safety during a time when close physical proximity presents risks, there is increased motivation to find ways to conduct business remotely and, consequently, digitally. Remote Online Notarization (RON) and Remote Ink Notarization (RIN) enable clients and parties to a real estate transaction to avoid physically appearing before a notary when signing documents. eRecording eliminates the need to visit the County Recorder or Registrar of Titles or physically deliver (by mail or courier) original paper documents for filing. The pandemic presents an opportunity for attorneys to embrace new tools that will aid you and your clients for years to come. Even if you (the attorney and notary) are not conducting a closing, it is imperative now more than ever that real estate attorneys be aware of how real estate documents can and may be signed and recorded in an upcoming closing.
