Signing electronically is easy and done through our website. You don't need any specialised software or even a printer!
You sign from your browser by logging into OpenRent at the relevant stage of Rent Now. You will be prompted and it will be explained on the page.
Digital signatures are becoming commonplace, used across all kinds of online and remote transactions in the UK. They make the process faster and easier and they are legally binding and admissible in court.
This was established by the Electronic Communications Act 2000 and subsequent EU Directives. See this guidance from GOV.UK for more detail.
Having said that - our contract is available for download as well, so you can ask your tenants/landlord to sign it personally (as well as online) if you prefer.
