In a move towards more contactless processes for the real estate industry, idealista has launched a new service that offers a way to create and remotely sign rental contracts for real estate agencies, landlords, and tenants for free.
Running the service is a third-party provider. When signing a contract through this service, users use a secure and legal electronic signature without having to install any application or downloads. These contracts can be signed using any device that connects to the internet.
On the other end, landlords and agencies can quickly and easily create their own rental agreements without the need for confusing industry lingo. The contracts also include clauses against repeat defaulters to protect landlords. All documents are stored in a single place for easy access, as well.
Idealista has following down the same path as many other portals across the world, where parts of the process, whether that’s viewing a property, advertising said property, paying for rent or mortgage, or sending and signing contracts, have become completely digital.
Trends are showing that even after the industry bounceback, companies are going to continue churning out technology to keep these processes contactless even long after the pandemic.
