To the good agents on this site.
Has anyone ever had a situation where only one party signs his copy of the AST?

I recently had an experience where the agent insisted I sign a copy of the AST, the tenants sign their copy,we exchange our copies but my signature is nowhere on the tenants' copy, and their signature is nowhere on mine. He insisted that was the legal way to set up contracts. Of course I had to insist on both parties countersigning each other's copy.

My question is, Should there be a depute between tenant and landlord, say with a deposit dispute or in the case of an eviction, will these ASTs not signed by both parties be accepted by the courts or the dispute arbitrators?

The agent also claims that is the correct way to sign contracts even when properties are sold, so that is how he always operates.

Just sharing my plight.
