    They can sign and fax a signed contract back to you, bring a signed copy to the inspection, or sign it at the inspection, but you have evidence that the client had time to do their due diligence and read the contract by the date you emailed them the contract (or however you get the contract to them), and that they then (at a later date, indicating time to review it) gave you the signed contract.
