Conveyancers and the wider legal profession have, more actively, been embracing Bonafidee and other e-signature platforms since 25 July 2016, when an important practice note was published. The note, developed by a joint working party from the Law Society, the City of London Law Society and leading City law firms was published to give solicitors more confidence to use e-signatures for commercial contracts. The note clearly sets out the relevant law around the use of e-signatures on commercial contracts, and addresses issues around their use. Click here to read the practice note.
Increasingly used by progressive, client orientated law firms, Bonafidee’s advanced e-signature solution is becoming a valuable addition to the e-conveyancer’s digital toolkit. By enabling contract documents to be securely e-signed from remote locations and forms to be completed and submitted electronically, Bonafidee is helping to speed up the home buying process and mitigating against the threat of conveyancing fraud.
Reducing the burden of paper documentation, postage and the need for as many face-to-face meetings, Bonafidee is helping conveyancers to minimise delays and deliver more convenience and improved experiences for property buyers and sellers alike. On 6 April 2017, conveyancers and their clients at Convey Law used the Bonafidee e-signature system to facilitate the first ever electronic e-signature exchange of contracts for a residential property transaction.
