Can extension of room lease be signed digitally?

Current tenant lease is over in June but need more time to look for other accommodation &
request for 1-2 months extension.

To safe the trouble of scheduling to meetup to sign the extension, is this possible?
- I email/WhatsApp tenant the lease
- tenant sign the lease
- tenant email/WhatsApp me back the lease

Is this way of signing valid?
Will the contract be valid in the eyes of the court of law, in case anything happen?

Thanks

In the eyes of the court, yes.

But banks and their lawyers refuse to accept it.

Anyone else knows?

Alternatively, Can I meet the tenant on my parents(landload) behalf for signing of the contract?
