How to Write Long Distance Leases Using the K.I.S.S. Principle

What is the K.I.S.S. Principle?

K.I.S.S. stands for Keep. It. Simple. Stupid. There are simple ways to sign leases, even when long distance.

Completing a lease while being a world away can be as simple as completing it locally. There are different methods — scanning and United States Post Office. So there are methods to meet everyone’s needs.

Simple Steps for a Ratified Contract

Using Technology

Step 1 – Email lease to tenant

 The Old Fashioned Way

Step 1 – Email lease to tenant

Step 2 – Review lease with tenant over the phone

Step 3 – Tenant overnights the lease back
