A tenant of mine of some 18 years has died 🙁
He was under the care of social services with a reading age of 8 or 10. He died without leaving a will.
Nobody from social services will give me official notice that the tenancy is to end.
What is the law on this?
The basis of the tenancy is a statutory periodic.
The problem now is that I don’t know how to end the lease with out someone possibly jumping out of the woodwork shouting and wanting compensation.
There are no known relatives around but as you can guess when money is involved scavengers soon start crawling out of the woodwork.
