Signing the lease and paying the security deposit are two separate issues. Furthermore, if you don't pay the security deposit then you could be in violation of the lease terms and be evicted if the landlord chooses. Normally you pay the security deposit before you and your landlord sign the lease, or work out a payment plan that you and your landlord agree to. If your landlord agreed to allow you to skip the security deposit then that part of the lease is waived and the rest of the lease stands.
