Hello and welcome to JustAnswer, my name is ***** ***** I am an attorney. Please note:This is general information for educational purposes only and is not legal advice.

By continuing, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms.I will try my best to get this all straight if you will help me. If I am understanding you correctly, no, the fact that your husband did not sign the lease would not make it null and void. He has no ownership of the property so there is nothing for him to lease or sell anyway. However, why do you say the optionee can stay in home for 5 years? That is not the case if it is a lease.
