Signing the sales agreement digitally
Why sign the sales agreement with a digital signature?
Bringing patient negotiations to fruition, the sales agreement is a legal document that must be signed as soon as possible so that future owners can finally achieve their property project, but also so that the agent can obtain their commission quickly. In actual fact, it’s always difficult to bring together the estate agent, buyer and seller in one place and the administrative formalities may take up to three months before signing the final deed of sale.
In this way, the sooner the sales agreement is signed, the sooner the sale can be completed. And to avoid postponing this moment because the three parties are not available at the same time, signing the sales agreement digitally is a quick, reliable and efficient solution.
The sooner the preliminary sales agreement is signed, the sooner the sale can be concluded
Signing a sales agreement with a digital signature is just as secure and legal as with a handwritten signature and saves a huge amount of time. Unlike the deed of sale, the sales agreement does not need to be signed in the presence of a notary. You can sign it directly at the estate agent’s or remotely.
To assist you in your efforts, Connective offers a reliable and secure electronic signature solution for sales agreements.
The benefits of signing the sales agreement electronically

what the law says
In Europe, the European Union stipulates that a qualified digital signature has exactly the same legal value as a handwritten signature. For this, it must meet the requirements of the European eIDAS regulation, which requires reliable identification of the signatory and the integrity of the document signed.
Connective’s digital signature solution meets these requirements, and many others (UETA, eSign Act, etc.). The buyer can then sign a sales agreement digitally with total confidence and security, because this authentic signing method enables a notary to sign a private deed, within the framework of a sales agreement.
