My question involves landlord-tenant law in the State of: South Carolina
Two other students and myself are looking at an apartment in South Carolina. However, neither one of us live in the city in which we are attending school, and were away. One of the roommates was shown an apartment, reported it was in excellent condition, and was informed to go ahead with drawing up a lease by the other two. At this time, he signed the lease. However, when the two others looked at the apartment, it was unsatisfactory for the price and have elected not to sign. Is the roommate who signed still bound by the contract even though all parties have yet to sign? If it is legally binding, is there an effective way to resolve the dispute, perhaps by allowing the landlord to keep the security deposit?
