Two person company landlord

27 Sep 2020 | 1 comment

I have a company which owns a residential property.  There are 2 shareholders and directors.  Is it ok to use the electronic signature method on signable provided that both directors electronically sign?  Does the tenancy need to be witnessed by a third party?  If so can that be done electronically on signable or does the agreement need to be printed and signed physically?

    Yes, two directors is sufficient. As long as the tenancy is less than 3 years fixed term, no witnessing will be required where two directors sign.

    This can be done electronically too.

    Although this article is talking about the deposit prescribed information, the same principle can be followed for the tenancy agreement and it shows how a company should sign a document.
