Emailing Forms to Consumers

If the consumer would like to receive a copy of the disclosure, they can enter their email address and a copy will be sent to them.

The RECBC Forms App records the date and time the disclosure was signed, and this information is included in the email. All information you enter, including text in the Notes field, will be shared with the consumer if they choose to receive a copy of the filled form.

The consumer’s email address is not recorded on the form and is not available through this RECBC Forms App for any purpose other than the transmission of the disclosure form.

In order to protect the consumers’ privacy, email addresses cannot be used for any other purpose than sending or re-sending the form.

Emailing and Saving Filled Out Forms

The RECBC Forms App works with or without an internet connection.

  • If your device is connected to the internet, an email is automatically sent with the form attached as soon as you complete the disclosure.
  • If your device is not connected, filled out forms will be held in Recently Saved Forms until your device is connected.

Your brokerage must save a copy of all completed forms

Filled out forms are saved for 72 hours in Recently Saved Forms after which they are deleted and cannot be recovered.

If the consumer or the brokerage does not receive the email with the filled out form, you can resend it within 72 hours to the email addresses provided in the form.
