Hello Nickey, a rental requires signatures and an end date, but the start date is not necessary to make a rental valid. Your occupation began when you received the keys that allowed you to access the house. The timing does not matter when it comes to rental contracts. Many states have laws that give someone 3 days to get out of a contract, but not for rents. So your only option is to go to the owner and ask to be rented. Otherwise, they are not required to do so since the signing of the lease. Two of the most important considerations for each tenant are price and fitness. What you can afford depends on you, but if you look at Advertising, remember that if the price seems too good to be true for the size and location of the rental unit, then it`s likely!

Sometimes a landlord will also ask you to sign a rental agreement stating that they have given you a copy of the owner-tenant code. Your landlord is required to provide you with a copy of the attorneygeneral.delaware.gov/wp-content/uploads/sites/50/2017/03/Landlord_Tenant_Code_Summary_for_Tenants_2014.pdf. If he doesn`t, don`t sign! You can give up some of your legal protections if you say you received a copy if you really didn`t. Beware of an owner who says «we`re going to develop it» or «Don`t worry about it» if you see something you don`t like in the lease. If it`s in the lease, the owner`s words don`t matter. All that matters is what is written. If your landlord offers to work something, you will receive it in writing or it will not happen. How many managers can sign your lease? Should the lease appointments be the same? Robert, did you sign something that says you gave up the lease or let him out early? If you are in a position where you can do so, it is usually easier to terminate the lease without fighting for rent than to track the rent collection by a reluctant tenant.
