What if I was offered a lease in a one-bedroom apartment and the landlord told me that she gave it to someone else within 24 hours? Linda, your situation seems complicated. If they indicate that you have falsified a rental agreement and you say you have falsified your signature, I can suggest that you bypass that employee and go directly to the real estate management company. You will be able to compare all signed documents and calendars. If you are not satisfied with the way the management company is responding to your concerns, go back to your local housing authority for help. And if you decide to take legal action from there, you can find a lawyer who is knowledgeable in real estate law and who has access to writing experts. We wish you the best of luck! Why is it so important for a tenant to sign the lease first? Leasing contracts are at the heart of a rental transaction. It is a contract that defines the broad outlines expected by both parties. Since the law will consider the lease as the main evidence, there is a dispute between the parties involved, it is important that you draw the agreement and follow the corresponding protocol in order to make it valid. If you have questions about the terms of thought or the lease, you should have your contract checked by a licensed lawyer who is familiar with the laws of the landlord and tenant in your state. Each state has different requirements as to what may or may not be included in a legal lease. What happens if you rent and you sign a new lease for two years, they and your rent check for that month and send it to you certified, so they can sign it and the check is not down payment and have not returned the lease, it has not signed in the post for how long it takes the mail back. If a tenant signs a rental agreement as owner and landlord signed as a tenant, that makes the rental agreement invalid Oh my! It`s a frustrating experience.
A signed lease is a legal contract, and if they withdraw, you have the legal right to recover all the money you gave them. As with any other legal status, I recommend that you contact the local housing authority to check the rules applicable to that state/county.
