AST's signed on line - how do you make that work?

Hi Oren
With each guarantor signing separate agreements I get what you mean about posting them a document each to return to me.
However, the issue I have is that there is ONE document for each of them to sign into and each to be countersigned by a witness. It means they'd have to post it between each other..... and then hope it got back to me by a certain date after it had done the rounds of 4 homes.
It's that posting about I was trying to overcome. No solution found!

My thoughts, entirely, so thanks for asking that, Oren!
Without that missing piece of vital information, I have no reason to revisit the subject of online signing.

I only need this facility occassionally for my two student houses that change-over every 2 or 3 years. So it's a serious no-go for this year.... and with the all the recent legislation changes going against us landlords, now is not the time to be experimenting with distant 'easy' signing arrangements for the ease of the tenants' guarantors.

However I don't object to getting my head around how this could work .... sometime in the future. It's just that the window of opportunity for use this month has expired and I'm short of brainspace to allocate it any further attention atm.

Thank you, Oren.....

But if you still have to send them postal copies to complete, what is the real use of Signable?

They're closed on Saturdays, so no help today even with chat bots. I have other fish to fry tomorrow, so I can't give them any more desk time.

I've given up with Signature. I concluded any prospect of dealing with them earlier today.

I've emailed guarantors now and provided clear instructions on how I would like them to return the information to me. If I don't get what I've requested prior to tenancy commencement, it means no keys go out on 01 July.

My bandwidth on anything digital to do with signing a multi-party document has been well and truly exhausted!

Disappointed after spending hours on Signable.... I can't make it work. My downloaded document becomes too small to edit and the screen pop ups keep over-riding the boxes I'm trying to fill. Can't waste any more time on it.

Anyway as Oren has pointed out, digital signing is no good where you need a witness to countersign + print their name, address and date.

I'm going to have to resort to emailing the 4 guarantor parties to each sign their bit and then make a master copy with four separate signature pages.

I've tried my best but for digital signing... it's a no from me. Ugh!!!!... Read More

Hi there

Thank you everyone for your very kind input! What a tremendous help you've been.

Special thanks to Sam Jones for providing the 'Janet&John version' (aka simple explanation!) on getting going with Signable. I'm right on it with their 'how to' video guides and chat botts.

I'm glad they do PAYG because I won't need this facility regularly. All my rentals are within a 3 mile radius of my home and the students I take from halls tend to stay til they graduate. Both houses change-over this year after 2 and 3 year tenancies and the world as I knew it last time round doesn't work now, hence the post.

I feel much more up to speed now! I'm extremely grateful to have the 118's community input, so thank you all once again.

I'm a very happy.....
