What are the rules on mail in leases? Are they valid from the date they are mailed or the date they are received.?

Asked by Kpears11, Topsail Beach, NC Fri May 14, 2010

I put a deposit down on a place, then later that afternoon the real estate agency called me and said they had received a deposit and a signed lease agreement in the mail a couple hours later. The company has a first come first serve policy. The agent and I had an oral contract via phone a day or two prior, and he said all i had to do was drop off the deposit and the place would be reserved. The lease was not available at the time i dropped off my deposit as my agent was not in that day. Where can i find text on this topic?
