Until you are 18, or are legally emancipated, you won't be able to sign a binding contract for the lease. But the owner may accept the cosigner's signature.

18 when you become an adult. Below the age of 18 a minor can't sign a contract or rent an apartment.

18. In all 50 states it is 18. A person under the age of 18 can not sign a contract and renting an apartment requires income and to sign a lease.

Missouri has a five-year and a ten-year statute of limitation that apply to contract disputes. The Missouri Supreme Court, clarifying 150 years of confusion, holds that the ten-year statute applies to contract disputes regarding payment of money.

If you paid a deposit they will want to keep your deposit and then may let you out of it. Read the fine print in your contract.

This will all depend upon what the contract says. If you signed a contract, you may be held to the lease or have to pay the penalty within the contract.

A nominate contract is one that has a specific name attached to it. An example of a contract of this type would be an apartment lease or a loan agreement.

It depends where you live and the contract you have.

No, you have to be 18 to sign a contract.

As a noun: I made a contract for an apartment lease As a verb: I contracted for electricity supply to my house.

A person must be of legal age to sign a contract. A lease on an apartment is a legal contract. So a 16-year old would not be able to sign this document.

There is a legal age for leasing an apartment in all 50 states. In most states, the age of majority is 18. Leasing an apartment falls under contract law.

As long as the landlord is aware that the child will be occupying the apartment, yes. This makes the parent responsible for the costs of the apartment in the event that the child fails to pay however.

User Avatar

Legally you must be an adult to sign a contract. With Parental consent and cosigning, you could get an apartment.

User Avatar

This may vary depending on your jurisdiction. Generally the landlord has no obligation to paint an apartment, unless it is otherwise in your contract.

There is nothing that would prevent it in Missouri. They are considered an adult and can enter into a contract.

User Avatar

Someone else have to sign the contract.

User Avatar

Generally, anyone under the age of 18 cannot enter a legal binding contract. A lease is such a contract. So no apartment complex would ever lease to a 17-year-old.

User Avatar

Yes there are. You can make up your own one. You need to seriously consider a apartment lease before you do it though. A lease is a contract. Here is a sample of a contract: http://www.lawchek.com/sample/apartle.pdf

You can move to live with someone else with their consent but they have to sign the contract for the apartment since you are too young.
