Digital Signatures on Commercial License / Lease Documents of 12 months duration 1Joanna Kinch asked 2 months ago

With all this COVID no contact, my commercial tenants, many of them small businesses want a no contact renewal. My Agreements ask for signatures and witnesses. I have been online to see whether I can dispense with the witness in that the Docusign and the like record the signature and prove the person was present. I saw the Law Society saying if less than 3 years duration a Contract can be signed and not witnessed. Do we have a definitive answer on this as I have several tenancies for renewal imminently and digital signatures, not wet signatures seems to be the only way to properly renew. Many thanks Joanna Kinch, Ebenezer Properties
