Real estate contracts, including leases, may legally and effectively be signed
and transported from one party to the next using email. This can be accomplished
using scanned documents. One party sends the document, another receives, signs, and
re-scans the document, then it is returned or sent on to another party by email.
It is also permissible to use faxed versions of the documents.
With todayâ€™s technology, one popular way of transmitting documents and securing
signatures is with the Authentisign Service. This is where the various parties initial
and sign documents while viewing them on their computer. One a person has completed
their portion of the signatures, the document is emailed back to the original person.
All of the documents signed on-line are protected using the United States
Postal Service Electronic Postmark. (USPS EPM).
