Tenant, guarantor and I are all in different places. I’d like to get as much as poss done remotely so that on check-in day all that has to be done is keys, meters, smoke alarm, stop tap and trip switches.
Anything wrong, please, with:
G signs before independent witness, both sign digitally, email agreement to me, all well in advance;
T and I sign tenancy before independent witness each, all sign digitally, email agreements to each other, all in advance. Can it be dated as day of signature, with particular attention paid to start and end dates as suggested in your article?
T pays 1st month rent on move-in day by bank transfer before keys handed over. So start date and date of first full payment of rent in step 2 above are both move-in day.
What if T pays by bank transfer on day before move-in day? Start date will be move-in day but first full payment of rent stated on tenancy agreement is date before move-in date (say 5th of month) and thereafter rent is to be paid on 5th of month?
