The tenant has passed away – what do I need to do?
If you are the joint tenant with the person who has died, or a close family member, you may be able to take on the tenancy. This is called a succession. There are criteria that need to be met before someone can succeed to a tenancy. If the tenant who has passed away was living alone and you are a relative who is clearing out the property, we will give you time to do this but the rent will need to be paid out of the deceased person’s estate. Please contact your Neighbourhood Manger 0n 01633 678539 to let us know about the death of tenant.
