How to “Sign” Documents Remotely Using PDF Scans

Earlier this month the English law society published some guidance about how to sign a contract using scanned or faxed signature pages. 
Maybe I am showing my age – but I still prefer to have two copies of the contract, each with two “wet” signatures on them (or more in the case of a multi-party contract). 
However, more and more often that is too difficult to arrange, or there is a deadline that means we need to exchange signature pages.  
Although quite hard to read the guidance is fairly pragmatic. It sets out what many of us have being doing in practice.
 It is also good timing – I am about to close a deal where I need to completed by scanned signature pages. 
 As a results I have tweaked the counterparts and fax execution clause in the document (a boilerplate clause) to reflect the law society guidance.
