E-SIGN Act - Faxing Lending Disclosures

Answered by: 

Question: 
Does the E-SIGN Act allow disclosures to be provided to borrower's via fax? If so, is it considered to be "received the same day"?
Answer: 

E-Sign doesn't mention the use of fax in making disclosures or obtaining authorization under E-Sign. Your state laws may reference if a fax is considered a proper disclosure. I would hesitate to assume that because I faxed a document, it had been received. I would want an independent verification of that.
