Landlord responsibilities after death.

By No idea at 21:37, Fri January 5 2018, in Renting Questions - 3 responses

Hi

My tenant sadly passed away a couple of weeks ago. Given the time of year I only found out this week through the management company. Does anyone know what my obligations are in terms of the rent. He died mid month and was paid up to end of month. Does the tenancy end immediately upon death? Or am I entitled to charge rent for 4 weeks after death.
I assume his deposit gets paid to his estate which I\\\'m happy to pay as he was a great tenant who kept the place well. I don\\\'t want to rip his family off, but would obviously prefer not to be down rent for the month until I sort a new tenant. I\'ve already arranged access for his family to get his belongings. Any advise welcome.
Thanks!
