As a leading San Francisco Bay Area team with a niche of representing out-of-area clients, we found that our our international Sellers had a hard time during Covid signing their closing documents. No US Embassies or Consulates were open. With Seller clients in lockdown in Bangkok, one of our closings was delayed by weeks while the Sellers tried to secure an appointment with a US Notary at their nearest consulate.
