SignIT FAQs

A transaction comprising of Offer and Acceptance in an electronic transaction.
An ‘electronic signature’ is any electronic method which carries the intention of being a signature. E.g. typing a name or other mark (for example, ‘X’) in a section of an online form and identifying this as a signature (E.g. by marking an acknowledgement to this effect).
Yes. As with majority of matters, Offer and Acceptance has already occurred before signing of contracts see Harvey v. Facey [1893]. The concepts that need to be satisfied in relation to electronic communication are Identification, Reliability and Consent.
No. A Contract for Sale of Land does not have to be witnessed. Practitioners/Conveyancers have taken reasonable steps to verify the identity of the parties prior to the e-signing processes.
No, as all the e-signatures are applied to the one final version of Contract all parties will be supplied with this original executed Contract.
Consent is normally obtained prior to invitation to e-sign. The option to decline is available within DocuSign, if one party declines then electronic exchange cannot proceed.
When placing your NSW Title Search order, the result would have either returned by email or to an integrated Practice Management System. Simply save this search result to a Local Folder on your PC to be able to import this back into eCOS service to compile your Contract.
If multiple vendors or purchasers are listed on the contract (separated by a comma) the SignIT platform identifies that there are multiple signing parties and makes allowance for the addition workflow based on the extra signatures.
SignIT will send multiple emails, each addressed to the individual parties with individual, unique links. This is much the same to sending a hard copy to one physical address for the two parties to sign.
DocuSign tracks the IP address and email address. You should also have verified your clients identity and the purchasers solicitor would also have verified their client.
