I've recently rented a flat in Malta and signed a rental agreement which states, prior to the terms, I am the landlord and he (the landlord) is the tenant. By the last page at the bottom, he signed as the landlord and I signed as the tenant.

Would this contract be invalid due to the incongruity?

Would this contract be invalid due to the incongruity?

No. In case of disputes, it will be easy to establish that the switch of labels was a mere and harmless mistake incapable of reasonably confusing either party as to each one's role in the contract. As such, the incongruity is inconsequential to the legal relation between the true landlord and true tenant.
