Dead Tenants Failed to Provide 60 Days Noticeby Tim Manni
We’re not kidding. Landlords across the country have been hounding family members of deceased tenants demanding back rent. Some landlords have even contested that deceased tenants broke the terms of their lease by not providing 60 days notice before “moving out.”
From The Consumerist:
After several court cases and investigations, the general consensus is that landlords can pursue back rent or violation fees via the deceaseds’ estate, but can not badger family to pay.
