I suggest you ...

dates are inconsistent on online lease forms

%date% and %move_in_date% are in different formats (in this case, U.S.
date format and mysql format, e.g. 11/05/2015 vs. 2015-11-05). This
illustrates why it's generally preferable in legal documents to write out
the date (November 5th, 2015), since this removes all potential ambiguity, and nobody wants to pay lawyers to argue over the date format or argue with an obstinate tenant over dates they're purposely twisting.

    I agree, I never sign a document anymore without writing out the full date. I've done enough international business I hate the stupid short formats!

    Lease form option data base field for move in date and lease end to use the format MM/DD/YYYY. Currently it is set to be YYYY/MM/DD
