Once your lease is drafted, it will be emailed to you and all other tenants on the lease for signatures via Docusign. The email will appear in your inbox with the subject line "Action Required: Lease #(Your Lease ID). It's time to sign your lease" from HomeSuite, Inc. via Docusign.
Once you open the email, you will see the following image. Click on the orange “Review Document” button to access the lease on Docusign.
This button will take you to the website Docusign where you can review and sign your lease. Once you open the lease on Docusign, you will be prompted to agree to use electronic records and signatures. Before you can review and sign the lease, you will need to select the box that states “I agree to use electronic records and signatures” pictured below and then press continue. From there, please use the following guide to complete the lease agreement.
Please read the entire lease agreement to ensure that all the information is correct. If you feel that the price, dates, utilities information, or parking information are incorrect. Please contact the HomeSuite Customer Care Team. Pay special attention to Section 35 “Due Before Occupancy” so you know what you have to pay before you can move-in. The rent amount in the "Due Before Occupancy" section may be different than your monthly rate. This occurs when you have to pay more than one month's rent or less than one's months rent before you move-in. See these articles for more information on how HomeSuite calculates rent.
