How to add a second signatory to your Investing Entity

It is often required to have two people sign closing documents when the investment is made by a married couple or an LLC or trust with common ownership by two people. CrowdStreet allows investors to have two signatories on their investing entity, where both can e-sign in DocuSign. If your particular circumstances require more than two signatories, please contact us directly by emailing


Adding a second signatory

1. Click here to access your CrowdStreet investor account. Click on the investing entity to which you would like to add a second signatory.


2. Select the appropriate Account Type, and ensure that the Name of the Investing Entity accurately reflects how it should be written on your future K-1 tax documents (e.g. in the case of a Joint Investing Entity, it should include the names of both partners).


3. In the Entity Members section, click Add Member.


4. Enter the Name and Email into their respective fields, and ensure that the Role is set to Investor, and Signatory is set to Yes for both yourself and the new member. 


5. Click Save Changes, located in the upper right corner of the window.

2. Once you finish completing the documents and signing, DocuSign will automatically send the other signatory an email with a link to enter the active DocuSign "envelope" to add their e-signatures. You will see their status as "Pending" until they finish, which will automatically submit the completed closing documents to the Sponsor for review.

Note: the additional signatory needs to log into their CrowdStreet account to execute closing documents.
