    Signing tenancy agreement

    My partner and I jointly own a property, which we will be letting out on a 6 month AST starting this Friday 19/8. I will be out of the country on Friday. Can I sign the tenancy agreement in advance of Friday? My partner will be meeting the tenant on the day and will sign the AST then along with the tenant before handing over keys etc.

    If I can sign in advance do I need to get my signature witnessed?

    Tenancy of less than 3 years in E or W does not need to be written or on paper anyway.
    I am legally unqualified: If you need to rely on advice check it with a suitable authority - eg a solicitor specialising in landlord/tenant law...

      Your partner can sign on your behalf if the document is not drawn up as a deed.

      You can sign in advance.

      A signature on a tenancy agreement does not need to be witnessed if it is not drawn up as a deed. However, if the document is drawn up with a signature space for a witness then you may as well get your signature witnessed as it saves arguments that it ought to have been witnessed.
