Good morning. Ideally, you want your father to sign the lease, since he is the owner and renting it out. If you want to help him down the road, with repairs or any other issues, you can do that but you want to make sure the lease is legally binding. If you do want to sign for him, you need to make sure you have POA to do so and/or any other documents which allow you to act on his behalf as his agent. You do want legal documents allowing you to sign for him but also keep in mind that it would and could subject you to be involved in any potential lawsuit, involving the rental property.
I just wanted to follow up and see if you had any other questions or needed me to clarify something. I am here to help, so please let me know. Thanks!
