Unfortunately, no. You cannnot legally enter into a Contract

until age 18. A parent can sign the Lease for you, or you can

become emancipated. At age 17, emancipation is easy and usually

involves simply seeing a judge. In most states, joining the

military and/or marriage will automatically emancipate you. Your

parent(s) should want to get you emancipated, since your parent(s)

will still be responsible for your actions until age 18.
