Question

Tenancy Agreements (England)

Scanned signatures

26 Feb 2016 | 2 comments

Is there any disadvantage to receiving documents which, in order to save time, have been signed on paper and then scanned and emailed to us? You have dealt with the matter of durability in another answer and the hard copy could be sent to us eventually.

    I have no problem with that at all.

    When I recently did a long lease via a solicitor which was a deed (we were letting a commercial unit for many years so it had to be a deed), the whole signing was done this way but the tenants solicitor insisted on me sending the original “wet ink” version of the tenancy agreement to them. (Which¬†didn’t bother me).

    I still laugh at this though because actually what they don’t realise to this day is that I actually signed it on a computer with a digital signature. There was therefore never any “ink” used!

    Fancy that! Thank you Adrian for your quick response. I don’t know what I would do without the Guild.
