    No. The agent / manager can sign a tenancy on behalf of the LL

    But ensure he has your written permission to act on your behalf

    Also ensure that the AST used complies with any mortgage T&C`s you may have

    With electronic signatures now you could sign it if you wanted to and the agent act as the witness

    In the conventional letting process, the landlord doesn't have to sign the tenancy agreement at all.

    The tenant receives a contract from the agent or landlord without the landlord's signature, and when they agree to it, the contract is made (offer, acceptance, consideration and intent). In that flow, the tenant's signature simply confirms the tenant's acceptance. The landlord's counter signature is helpful because it's nice to have things in writing, but it actually makes no difference to the contract itself.

    If the intention is that the contract isn't formed until the landlord signs it, that condition should be part of the agreement documentation itself (as should any other conditions).
