Everything You Need to Know About eContracts

Jessica Alden eContracts

An eContract, or electronic contract, is a legal document created and signed online. It is essentially a digital version of a traditional paper contract. As with paper contracts, eContracts are agreements signed by two parties. They are enforceable and legally binding documents that are typically used regarding employment, sales, services, or tenancy. With a typical paper contract, one party drafts an “offer” and the other party reads over it. If both parties agree to the terms and conditions listed in this initial offer, they will each sign the document and it becomes a valid contract. Each party must hold up to their end of the agreement or they face the risk of legal recourse. This is no different with an eContract. Although a paper copy is not presented, a digital signature still enters both parties into a legal agreement.
