Prescott, AZ asked in Consumer Law, Contracts and Small Claims for Arizona

Q: Am I obligated to pay for a rental car that I didn't sign an agreement fro it?

I recently rented a car, and typically before you get the keys, you sign a rental agreement. I was not asked to sign any agreement, am I still obligated to pay without signing an agreement?

A: An Arizona attorney could answer best, but your question remains open for two weeks. As a general premise, signing an agreement has evolved from what it meant in the past. Digital keystrokes on a computer or other device have attained the same legal force as a traditional signature left by a pen on paper in many routine transactions. An Arizona attorney could offer more meaningful input based on state-specific consumer protections. Good luck
