The mortgage loan that you have applied for involves various disclosures, records, and documents ("Loan
Documents"), including this eDisclosure Agreement. The purpose of this eDisclosure Agreement is to
make you aware that the Federal E-SIGN ACT allows us to provide these documents to you via electronic
means verse paper form once we obtain your consent. You will also be able to sign and authorize these
Loan Documents electronically, rather than on paper.
Before we engage in this transaction electronically, it is important that you understand your rights and responsibilities. Please read the following and affirm your consent to conduct business with us electronically.
In this consent, "we" "us" and "our" are used to refer to Region Mortgage, and to any assignee to whom we may propose to sell the loan or service the loan. For purposes of this eDisclosure Agreement, "eDisclosures" means the Loan Documents related to this transaction that are provided electronically, and "You" and "Your" mean the borrower(s) under the applicable loan to which such Loan Documents apply.
Please indicate your consent to receive electronic documents by checking the "I Accept" box below. You
are also confirming that you have the necessary computer software and hardware to accept the electronic
forms and that we have your valid, active e-mail address.
Please note that if you choose "I Decline" to accept documents electronically, this does preclude us for sending any Loan Documentation via e-mail as well as secure document transfer. If at a later date, you request that we e-mail any Loan Document, we will need this eDisclosure Agreement executed to acknowledge your acceptance.
Electronic Signature (eSignature): You consent and agree that your use of a key pad, touch screen, mouse or other device to sign or select an item, button, icon or similar act/action while using any electronic service we offer; or in accessing or making any transactions regarding any document, agreement, acknowledgement, consent, term, disclosure, or condition constitutes your signature, acceptance and agreement as if actually signed by you in writing. Further, you agree that no certification authority or other third party verification is necessary to validate your electronic signature; and that the lack of such certification or third party verification will not in any way affect the enforceability of your signature or resulting agreement between you and Region Mortgage. You understand and agree that your eSignature executed in conjunction with the electronic submission will be legally binding and such transaction will be considered authorized by you.
By affixing my electronic signature, I authorize Region Mortgage to obtain a credit report and that this information be used to pre-qualify me for a mortgage loan.
On June 30, 2000, President Clinton signed into law the The Electronic Signatures in Global and National Commerce Act (The E-Sign Act). The E-Sign Act makes e-signatures as legally binding as ink-and-paper signatures. The E-Sign Act also eliminates legal barriers to storing documents and sending notices electronically. A credit professional may now engage in e-credit transactions across state lines and the credit sale contract is valid in all states.
Neither the E-Sign Act nor the FCRA should bar a credit professional from obtaining an electronic consent to pull a credit report, and otherwise be in full compliance with the FCRA. However, the E-Sign Act requires that the consumer decides whether to use an e-signature or handwritten.
