I have done many Signings for AmeriStar. They are a class operation, and treat their Signing Agents with respect. Their Fee is fair and their payment is quick. Michael and his staff are great, and I look forward to doing many more Signings for them.

@LindaH

Where did that come from? I believe the subject of the posting was Ameristar Signing, not my personal business. I did not say I was impressed. My comment was how refreshing it was that they followed up on their own and I did not have to write them any letters. I think it was a positive general comment about them.

You do not send your invoice or W9 to the lender when hired by a signing service; you invoice the signing service separately. While title companies pay faster and directly, I personally think 30 days is acceptable for a signing service.

If that is not good enough for you, then don't accept their jobs. And my business does just fine, thank you very much.

They just sent me an email yesterday asking me for my invoice and W9. That is very refreshing.



You may be impressed - I, being in this business for over 7 years, am not.

It was a modification - very few pages, no funding involved. This job should have been paid 2-3 weeks ago - immediately upon their receipt of the signed docs back. Instead, over 30 days after the signing, they're requesting your invoice and W-9? You should have sent those back in the package with the signed documents - with a note on your invoice that payment is due upon receipt.

How long do you have to wait to be paid now?

I am not impressed. And a word of advice? Start to run your business like a business - or you won't be in business for long.

JMHO

Yes, I have done several refinance closings for them with no real problems. They are a bit more work than most signing companies as they require constant communication after every transaction plus every closing I have done for them required fax-backs of 50 or more pages. For the money I would rather do closings for other companies but I suppose they all can't be gravy. They pay roughly three to four weeks after the closing date.

My only complaint is that they hand hold, they require an email after you have confirmed with the signer, after you have received and printed your documents, after you have done your fax backs (if required) and after you have mailed out your packet. They also require that you invoice them after each job. If the communication requirements are not met they say they will reduce your fee and remove you from their list.

I received a call from Ameristar the other day but had to turn back the signing because the borrower did not speak English. I told them they needed to reassign with a Spanish speaking notary.

Other than that they did approve the fee I requested for traveling outside my home county and were upfront about faxbacks.
