Bank'z Zahlungversprechen [promise of payment] with only one authorized signature?

Hey, I'm selling a property - currently in final stages about to sign contract at the notary.

The buyer sent me Zahlungsversprwchen letter from the bank (ZKB) and here's the weird thing: it's signed by two persons - buyer's contact person at ZKB and (I suppose) his boss.

According to Handelsregister, actually only the boss has a power to sign for the bank. And not alone, but as a "Kollektivprokura zu zweien". The other person is not on Handelsregister. So I suppose the letter technically has no legal power since the second authorized signature is missing?

Is it paranoid to think that I'm going to get ed and ask the bank to please add a third signature to your signature? Or is this normal in Switzerland?

I went back to original Zahlungsversprechen from when I was originaly buying my property and it was the same thing there, only person authorized to sign has signed instead of two.
