Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Sadly the tenancy ends the day they die
You can't have a dead tenant liable for a tenancy
What you need to do is allow access to collect the effects
In terms of rent owing, you perhaps need to also be a little sensitive given the circumstances
But the estate of deceased would be liable for any rent owing up to the date they died
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
no thank you
