Question: What to do if you have not signed a dating document?

Is a document valid without signature?

When a contract is not signed, the party that allegedly breached the agreement may be able to argue that no enforceable deal was ever reached. Under state regulations, a signature on an otherwise legally valid contract or agreement will not be denied the force of law simply because it is electronic.

Legally, a date is not required; if there is an expected timeline but a listed date is not on the contract, it is not considered enforceable. If the contract is undated but is marked as for consideration, it is still valid.

Can you be held to contract if you have not signed it?

An unsigned written contract can be binding, although a court will look at all of the circumstances before concluding that the parties intended to be bound. The lack of a signature would normally suggest that the parties had not yet reached the point where they were agreeing to be bound.
