Electronic signatures on tenancy agreements
We would like to move to electronic signatures. There seems to be conflicting advice online about whether this is valid or not - e.g. https://www.wrighthassall.co.uk/knowledge/legal-articles/2018/11/13/leases-and-electronic-signatures/ and https://www.landlordsguild.com/how-to-use-electronic-signatures-in-tenancy-agreements/I have looked at providers such as DocuSign. I have two questions I would appreciate help on:
- Are electronic signatures on ASTs legally enforceable?
- Has anyone implemented this and if so, using what system/provider?
Thanks very much for your help.
