rent a house that has two owners

Hello. I am going to rent a house that has two owners (spouses). So, when I will sign a contract, should I expect signatures of both owners or I just can sign a contract with one owner? And if I sign a contract only with one spouse....and in a few weeks another spouse will come and say that he never saw us and we should leave his property? I just want to be sure just in case. Thank you.

I'm no lawyer, however, having been a landlord in the past and now a Realtor I believe it would be in your best interest to cover your bases and have both persons who are owners of the property to also be on the rental agreement/lease.
In the event this is not possible I would strongly recoment consulting an attorny that deals with real estate to see if having only one signiture could hurt you in the long run.  It shouldn't be hard to find an attorney to ask.  If you need a recomendation, please contact me and I can give you some contact info for someone that i've used and I trust.
Hope it all works out!
