During a registration procedure for an housing website, I probably inverted my name and my surname (I don't remember exactly how the form was). Now, in the whole contract, my name and surname are inverted, and also the electronic signature option reports my name and surname inverted. I have contacted the landlord, and he said that it is not a problem. Can I sign the contract or may I have any problem?
It’s not a problem
Is there any reasonable prospect that you or the landlord would argue in a dispute that you are not the tenant? No.
Is there any reasonable prospect on all the available evidence that such an argument would succeed? No.
Therefore, no problem.
Where this can be a problem is if someone commences legal action in the wrong name (e.g. the landlord sues “Travis Parks” instead of “Parks Travis”] and there is a summary judgement (if there is a hearing the mistake will be sorted out). A judgement cannot be enforced except on the named person.
It can also be a problem if the lease is in the name of a company. Because companies are ‘virtual’ people, they can only act through agents and their name (and number in some jurisdictions) is the only thing that identifies them.
