Signing a simple lease allows landlords to answer a number of questions for tenants. Questions that may arise during the duration of the rental. The advantage of registration is that a tenant can in no way claim ownership from the owner. What if I was offered a lease in a one-bedroom apartment and the landlord says she offered it to someone else in 24 hours? Look at this anecdote from the Washington Post: A couple of landlords sent a lease to potential tenants to sign it. The landlords sent the lease after signing it themselves, but stumbled upon the radio silence of potential tenants. Since they had already signed the lease, they were simply waiting for a response from the tenants, but heard nothing. During this period, they could not simply rent the property to another applicant, since the original tenants could present themselves with the original signed rental agreement. While the couple waited, the property remained uninhabited and did not collect any rental income. If the couple had sent an unsigned copy, they could have rented the property to another party, as a lease would not be valid without the owner`s signature.
And if you were added to a lease by an endorsement, but the landlord never signed it. Is it still valid for a period of one year or would it be a default monthly lease? If you`re in a hurry to get a lease or want to get an idea of what an extension of the lease would be, you don`t need to look any further.

Sometimes the second party can sign, but can`t (or forget) send a signed copy. Maybe you`d like to contact your landlord to ask for a signed copy of your documents. If they have not/will not be signed, the fact that it is mandatory depends on the rules of your country. In some cases, the landlord, who allows you to move in and accept your deposit and rent, is considered in the event of a dispute as consent to the lease. . . .
