Only if there is wording in the contract which permits this, or if the law in your state permits certain changes without mutual consent. Otherwise, by tampering with the contract your landlord may have voided the entire agreement. You should probably check with a real estate or civil attorney.

only if all parties agree to it

No. The contract is bound by the law that existed and was known to the parties at the time the contract was drawn up and signed.

User Avatar

Yes. A contract or agreement need not be written on a typewriter or computer to be valid, as long as it is signed by both parties.

User Avatar

It can be held to be valid. If the parties are acting as if both parties have signed it, it will be enforced.

User Avatar

under no circumstances. it is better to write void on the previous lease if it is not signed by the tenant. ONCE signed by the tenant, there is a legal contract in place.

User Avatar

If the parties haven't executed a contract signed by both parties then you are not "under contract".

User Avatar

you will have to read your contract agreement that you signed for the tenant/landlord relationship.

User Avatar

A signed contract is a key piece of evidence. It shows that both parties agreed to specific language. Without it, the evidence of the contract and its terms has to be inferred from the actions of the parties.

User Avatar

A contract is a legally binding agreement between the parties who have signed it, unless written into the contract otherwise, all parties are bound by the terms of the agreement/contract they signed.

User Avatar

If both parties are in agreement to the terms. Otherwise any written contract, signed by both parties, must be kept.

User Avatar

Assuming you are one of the parties on the contract, Yes.

User Avatar

If it is signed by both parties it is a binding contract. The lessee can cancel, but may be subject to cancellation fees. The landlord can cancel if the tenant has broken the lease agreement in any way. This would entail a notice from the landlord to the tenant. If the renewal is signed by only one party, it is not yet valid.

User Avatar

In most cases, the contract only needs to be signed by the party sought to be bound.

User Avatar

You would have to check with your landlord, or the contract that you signed, otherwise its OK.

User Avatar

I don't think so. Most of the time; they state when rent is due on the contract that both you and the landlord has signed. Check your contract, lease.

User Avatar

Only if both parties agree to dissolve the contract or the contract was an illegal contract or it was signed under duress.

User Avatar

Generally not. A signed contract is generally binding and requires both parties agree to terminate the contract and create a new one.

This argument has been raised countless times by many defendants. It's the old "Well on my lease, my landlord signed it but I didn't", it just happens to be its antecedent. But think of that argument in this perspective:The landlord or his attorney wrote the lease.Chances are you've never met the landlord prior to having some sort of interest with them (the place you rented). So how would you have the defendants contract with your signature on it, in your possession?These facts can easily be obtained by asking the respective parties these questions. These questions give rise to the fact that a contract can be binding if both parties act in a way in which a reasonable and ordinarily prudent person would find that a contract existed.Even though the landlord may not have signed the lease agreement, you both acted in a way in which would suggest a landlord-tenant relationship exists. You're therefore bound by your lease.

A valid contract is a law binding agreement which will be signed by both parties. This contract will be valid.

onl yif it has not been signed by both parties

User Avatar

There are two meanings for a fully executed contract: 1.) When signed by both parties. 2.) When the contract has been fully performed by both parties.

User Avatar

Whatever the contract says (on both parties), provided it is signed by both parties and no provisions of the contract contravene the local law of the land.

User Avatar

All parties to the contract must make any changes in writing and signed by all parties.

User Avatar

A contract signed by both both parties is enforceable and cannot be withdrawn from except as provided for in the contract itself.

User Avatar

If the right to change the contract was in the original severance contract, yes. If not, no, a signed contract cannot be changed.
