executed copy with the landlords...
I signed a lease on 2/10/16. I have not received the executed copy with the landlords signature. I want to back out of the lease for several reasons. Since he has not provided me with a fully executed copy is the lease in effect? Can I legally get out of it?

Anne was extremely helpful. Her information put me in the right direction for action that kept me legal, possible saving me a ton of money in the future. Thank you again, Anne!!

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
