To understand the difference between signing a contract and entering into force a contract, there are two important concepts: the validity date and the date of execution. A start date is the day activities begin in the contract. This is actually another term for a validity date. While we recommend using the term “validity date,” you can see the concept of start-up from time to time, especially for rental contracts. For example, if you move to a new apartment, you can sign the rent in advance. Often, a landlord and tenant will sign the contract weeks or sometimes months in advance. Although you can sign the lease well before the official move to your new rental property, you are not bound by the terms of your lease until after the effective date. For most leases, this is the first day of your fixed-term or automatic lease. This is also often the day when you can get the keys and start moving. In many cases, the execution date of a contract comes before the validity date. Under these conditions, the date on which all parties sign the contract is different from the date on which the contract enters into force. The execution date is the date on which both parties sign the contract. It is when both parties agree on conditions and conditions, as the treaty describes.
However, this is not necessarily the day the treaty enters into force. So what is the effective date of a treaty? Depending on the contract, the validity date and the date of execution may be the same. Read your contract carefully to determine exactly when it will start. Note, however, that there are different ways to include a validity date in a contract. Sometimes a validity date is a fixed date, which is explicitly stated. However, the contract may not start on a fixed date and may be subject to conditions. If a contract begins on the date all parties sign it, it is a conditional validity date. A contract may also begin after important documents have been filed with the state or on the date a licence is issued.
In addition, a contract is considered valid only if all the necessary parties sign it. If z.B. the lease deadline is September 1, but today is September 3 and the necessary parties have not signed the contract, it is invalid.
