Holding signed docs after scanning

I had a signing company in Florida ask me to do a signing for authorization of solar panels 6 pages
Scan back the docs . Then hold original copies for them in case they need them
I told them I wanted a waiver because I wouldn’t accept responsibility or the liability of the docs
I can hold the scans but not original docs .
I passed
Anybody have any comment. .We’re in NY

I don’t like it, but I’ve done it AFTER getting a short term (wk/10 days max) cutoff date agreed to in writing.

I’ve had some signings like this. I’ve been requested to keep documents 5-10 days then shred. I assume just to make sure the next phase of the plan goes into play and nake sure there are no issues.

I’ve had requests for scan backs only. No need to return documents. Personally, I wouldn’t hold documents unless I was waiting for a shipping label after document review. No more than 24 hrs.


Same but different. I had a closing and they said hold the originals (I had a return label) until we get the scans and review them. I said no, I don’t want to be responsible for originals that ARE needed at your end. I sent them back, no problems.
