for five star law -If I rent an apartment, does my husband need to sign the lease?

Welcome back and thank you for directing your new question to me. I greatly appreciate your continuing business.

Your Question - If I rent an apartment, does my husband need to sign the lease?

My Answer - No. There is not a legal requirement that your husband sign the lease

Explanation - A spouse may lawfully enter into a contract to lease property without the consent of his or her spouse. That said, the landlord may have additional requirements. The landlord may require a cosigner and/or a spouse to sign the lease.

I would be glad to respond to any related follow-up questions that you may have.
