Abject Failure of the ICO is beyond belief

I think the word you are looking for to describe the ICO is "Quango".

Am I wrong to insist on signing a new contract in person?

Eh ? If the preconditions of the lease are met, then and only then, does it become a live document. Therefore you can sign a lease - but no keys until deposit and first months rent ( or whatever the terms are ) are received. So yes you can sign remotely.... Read More
