Did the leasing agent did sign the lease? Then you must get a copy of it because their signature binds the Owner to the contract. More than likely, if you signed it, they do not have to sign to sue you for breaching your responsibilities under the contract. But you need a signed copy to sue the Owner for its responsibilities. It does not need to be signed in your presence. It just needs to be a valid signature from someone with the authority to bind the Owner to the agreement. Best of Luck!
