The lease execution date is just to denote the date the lease was signed. There will be a reference to either that date - or other dates - in the lease for specific performance - ie: possession of the property, commencement of the rent, rent or deposit due, construction to be done, etc., etc., etc. so it COULD or could not be an instrumental date. Just a date where a meeting of the minds has relegated the terms of the lease to where both parties agree to those terms.
