Lease Signature Block if Manager Signs for Owner


Over the past year, as I’ve reviewed client’s documents, I’ve seen several of my clients not following good contract law and executing leases on behalf of the owner and themselves. Signing for the owner (under some Power of Attorney or agency authority) has some specific requirements and getting it right is important. It’s a serious problem and could backfire. When I first observed this, I was a little confused and felt I needed to discuss with Monica before I made any comments to my students. These notes are a summary of those leal and practical conversations and provide instructions for how you should organize your document signature block.
