We are still new to renting. The two renters we have had just returned the part of the contract with name, address and signature. Do we need the whole contract back to show they read all of the rules and regulations? Thanks for your help. Nancy
My contract has 4 pages-- not full pages-but each page deals with it's own issue ( 1st is all personal info, billing, authorization to billl credit card, etc .2nd is Deposit info and terms, 3rd is Terms of Rental & Cancellation Policy, 4th is Hold Harmless).
Each page is numbered under the signature line- 1 of 4, 2 of 4, etc. If I don't get ALL of them back, signed and dated, I reserve the right to cancel the reservation. And, yes, I have done just that , though only once. If I have their signature, it is a legal, binding contract.
I've thought about the line by line initials thing- just haven't taken the time to rewrite the contract.
