Soft Copy Of Agreement

For example, an agreement with an original signature and a copy of the other signature. Or a photocopy of an agreement that had both original signatures. Many people still believe, wrongly, that only an “original” signature can be applied. This would require an original of the contract signed by the parties, and no copy, fax or scan of the contract. However, the rules of evidence have always addressed this issue by overwhelming any party that loses original documents (this is part of the 2010 dust about mortgage closures by robo signatories who don`t have access to original documents). An original signed copy of a legal document is always an acceptable equivalent. In some cases, the signature can be signed in the presence of a notary or verified by an identity document. The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (E-Sign Act) of 2000 allows the use of electronic records in consumer contracts as long as the consumer has given consent to their use. It states that any law that provides for a signature may be complied with by an electronic signature and that electronically executed agreements may be presented as evidence in court. .
