The benefits of electronic signature in real estate
The real estate sector is a sensitive sector for everyone’s wealth and for the finances of the state. This is why its activity is very controlled, and which says control, says ubiquitous signatures in the management of a property. Until the Alur Law and more recently the Elan Law these signatures were the main obstacles to the dematerialization of documents. But now the electronic signature has the same legal value as the handwritten signature and therefore allows the removal of the paper.
The dematerialization of documents is rapidly modernizing the sector. The electronic signature lightens the entire documentary chain since from now on everything is automatable. Remote electronic signature saves you even more time since many documents are signed without a physical encounter or before it is needed!
Applications of electronic signature in real estate
What documents will you and your customers be able to sign electronically?
Sales mandate and lease mandate
For owners not residing in the property (and your agency), the ability to immediately remotely sign a warrant will allow you to get more commitment. Indeed your client can sign as soon as you have convinced him (by phone, or by internet) that you are the right interlocutor to take care of his property. Thus limiting the risk that a competitor will convince him by the time he receives and returns the mandate as is the case in paper version.
The application is interesting here because by having your potential buyer sign remotely before your visit, it prevents you from discussing the administrative part with him during the visit.
This is perhaps the biggest step forward: forget the 20 lines of text that the guarantor had to fill and that you had to control painfully. Now electronic signature avoids this formalism. Changes in legislation sometimes get really good!
Offer to buy and sell compromise
We are dealing here with sensitive acts. You will offer the opportunity to the signatories to seal their commitment as soon as their choice is priced and whatever the time of their decision.
Signing leases remotely is a valuable time saver in tense times such as back-to-school for university towns. Students who want to rent an apartment without moving because they enjoyed the good on the internet can sign their lease instantly. And a small reminder, their guarantor can also sign the bond electronically. It is also ideal for seasonal rentals where vacationers are often on the other side of the country or the world.
State of play
If the former occupant cannot be present during the state of play, this will no longer prevent him from remotely signing your statement. This speeds up the work or the refund of the residual security deposit to close your file.
