My father passed away recently aged 78, in Scotland. He was in care under the mental health act long term due to Bipolar, had been for a few years. It was decided that he could not return home, his home was rented from the council, his tenancy was ended and his household possessions put into storage, this was forced on him. Due to my Father's age, situation and the condition of his household items, they should have been retired not stored. I was never consulted or involved in the decision to end my Father's tenancy and put his items into storage. I never signed any agreements with anyone about anything. I received a letter around the end of June stating that storage had been paid until 15th July, along with details of the storage company and an inventory. No other information was given. Am I legally obliged to pay for storage after the 15th July 2015 and am I legally obliged to pay for the disposal of the items in storage? If the answer is no, would going to the storage facility and looking for photos and taking them then make me liable in anyway. My husband would have to do this on my behalf. This is all very stressful as I am housebound presently due to illness and I would rather not have to deal with this if I don't have to.
