Can you sign realtor forms electronically?
The use of eSignatures is regulated by federal law. The law outlines a short list of exceptions, documents that cannot be signed electronically, e.g., last will. However, in most cases, documents can be eSigned and have the same legal effect as those sealed with a wet signature.
Most real estate documents can be signed electronically, like a contract between a real estate broker and a client. Nevertheless, certain documents may be filed in the public record and therefore need a wet signature to be considered valid. Check the regulations in your state that specify the requirements for such documents.
How to sign realtor forms electronically
signNow allows real estate businesses to facilitate document-related tasks in multiple ways. Not only can realtors use the uploaded documents as reusable templates for contracts but also can create forms for collecting clients’ data in a convenient way. These kinds of forms allow real estate professionals to collect data quickly and reduce errors in the applications.
Real estate documents can be completed and signed electronically in signNow’s user-friendly interface. To share the document with a client, you will need to upload a form, add any necessary fields, save the document as a template, and send the document to the client. The client will receive, review, and eSign the documents, which will then be available for download. Both the real estate agency or realtor and the client will have a valid digital copy of the document.
The whole process of preparing a lease agreement form only takes a few steps:
- Upload a document to your signNow account.
- Open the file and complete all required fields.
- Click on the signature field and add your signature.
- Click Done to save edits.
You may then send the document to a client by indicating their email address. The client will receive an email invitation. Following the link in the email, the client will be able to view and eSign the document. After the signature is added, the document will be available for download, and you will be notified about its completion. This way, in a few clicks, you will have the lease agreement form signed without ever being in the same place as your client.
