Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
Legally, you do have to sign them if they are required for the financial assistance or for the lease, but legally they also must give you a copy of anything that you signed. If they are refusing to give you copies of what you signed, then you need to go back to the office and ask them for copies. If they refuse to provide copies, then you need to contact the local housing and urban development office and ask them for copies, since the landlord has to send the forms into them for their records.
