There are two options when signing a contract with SiØ :
1. Signing rental contracts with BankID
To sign a rental contract electronically with BankID, you need a Norwegian bank account with BankID. (Ask your bank about this, if you have not have a BankID)
You can sign the rental agreement by choosing the option "Sign" in the "Contract history".
This option activates BankID-signing. Follow the instructions in the procedure and you will be led through the signing process step by step.
To sign with BankID is simple, safe and as binding as a handwritten signature.

2. Signing rental contracts without BankID
For you that have not got a BankID or of other reasons wish to sign with handwritten signature, the procedure is as follows:
1. Download the rental contract (PDF file) by using the option button "Download" and print out the contract.
2. Sign the contract, scan the document, and return it to the landlord using the option button “Upload”.
