Am I wrong to insist on signing a new contract in person?Make Text Bigger
Do many landlords ever dare to sign up new tenants remotely – or only in person?
I recently gave a viewing to to a prospective tenant who was only in town for the day. We got on well. She now wants to sign a contract without having to meet again for a 2nd time.
I feel it is better to meet again in person, because if we don’t, one of us will have to “make the leap” first – she will either have to wire me £2k in rent and deposit without having a contract and keys, or I will have to post her keys and a signed contract without taking receipt of the £2k.
Does anyone sign up new tenants remotely?
Or am I worrying too much ?
