homefully chose the tree-friendly and hassle-free way to provide you with a rental contract: DocuSign. Legal validity is ensured for both contract partners here, one of the main reasons DocuSign became a vital part of numerous companies’ contractual business.
So, you will sign the contract online and receive it via E-Mail in the end. It’s as simple as it sounds and very intuitive.
What is the process of signing a contract with homefully and DocuSign?
After you chat with our lovely Community Team who clarified your questions and picked a room with you, you will receive an E-Mail from DocuSign. It’s subject contains “Your homefully rental agreement”, as well as the flat name, room number, and flat address. Example “Your homefully rental agreement, Belinda 4, Linkstraße 6 10785 Berlin”
The link enclosed in this E-Mail will lead you to your digital DocuSign envelope. The website may give you the option to sign up for the platform, which is not mandatory to sign a contract. Please agree with DocuSign’s terms and conditions regarding electronic documents and signatures.
Your digital envelope contains the rental agreement, a withdrawal instruction, and withdrawal notice, as well as the homefully Community Guidelines. Take as much time as you need to read through everything carefully.
You only need to fill in your current location manually. The current date automatically adds after you signed.
To sign, click on the yellow button labeled “Signieren”, fill in your name, initials, and choose your signature’s style. You can also draw your signature if you prefer. Either way, it’s a valid signature. Then proceed with signing withdrawal forms and Community Guidelines. After providing all four signatures, click on “Fertigstellen” at the very bottom of the page.
For the contract to be valid, homefully needs to countersign it, which will happen after 3-4 hours (during business hours) or 2-3 days (during weekends). A precondition for homefully’s countersign is, of course, you have sent all required documents to the Community Team member you are in touch with. As soon as the contract is complete, you will receive a copy via E-Mail so you add it to your personal documents and check out the details at anytime.
