My experience is not within the Condo community, but I have never seen a lease signed before permission was granted in other types of communities. What I do know is that rental rules vary by state and type. Associations usually write these instructions in Condo Association Covenants, Conditions & Restrictions (CC&Rs) and Rules &Rs and may even offer a preferred rental form. If you do not find this in your documentation, I strongly recommend that you call the Condo association to ask. 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. Anyone who signed the lease should receive a copy of the contract. Tenants must keep their copies in a safe place that they can refer to throughout the rental if necessary. Some home managers or landlords may charge the tenant for an additional copy of the lease.
The agreement as a whole must be clear and easy to understand. We signed a rental agreement and then gave our deposit to the owner on 10/9; We met on 14.10. to check loose ends to approach and maintain before moving in on 15.10. It was clear that several violations of the building rules were not concluded, as well as the basic cleaning of carpets and the house. The landlord became very defensive, called her husband (who is not on the lease), and then said she wanted to terminate the lease. She asked me for the key and I told her she would get it if I received my money ($2300 she was paying). My husband told me that I was rude and that I gave him the key. She also listed the property at the same price literally right after on Zillow. Our mobile capsule is there since we delivered it for the move of the day that did not happen. (You save it).
