E-Signing Purchase Agreements on USDA, FHA, and VA loans....

Real Estate Agent with John L. Scott Real Estate / Yelm

Hey Everybody,

I've recently had some trouble at a Closing on a FHA loan.

Sterling Bank required the Buyer to re-sign the Purchase Agreement everywhere that they had done an e-signature on the contract.

The Loan Officer told me that "Everyone is requiring manual signing on government loans". (USDA, VA, FHA)  On conventional loans, they say that they are OK, just not government loans.


Have you had this experience?


If so, what good are the electronic signatures?


Thanks for your feedback!

This is a really good point here Bill. I just had the government kick back e-signatures. Not sure why they cannot their stuff together.
