Remote Online Notarization (“RON”) continues to grow in popularity across the country as the industry continues to navigate through the pandemic. The American Land Title Association (“ALTA”) conducted a survey of consumers who have used some version of RON as part of a real estate transaction. An overwhelming number of the consumers polled felt the RON process was safe and secure. ALTA published the results from a Virginia based title company showing that 95% of the surveyed consumers would recommend RON to other consumers.* Not surprisingly, the use of RON is on the rise and more and more states are enacting statutes allowing for some version of RON. As of July, ALTA noted that 37 states currently have a statute related to RON. We predict this number will increase in 2022 with the next cycle of legislative sessions convening.
