My tenant has unfortunately passed away in hospital?

"There is no way that you could know the size of the estate. Just because the tenant was claiming benefits doesn't mean there isn't one"

Incorrect assumption and one which if it is proven, that there was excess in the estate such as savings, then a whole new can of worms shall be opened. As the landlord recieved rental income via HB from a Tenant whom was not entitled.

DWP may well try to recover these payments from either the landlord and/or the "deceased's estate"... Read More

Beaver, this is just becoming unneccesarily complicated and your suggestions are not really addressing the situation Pradit finds themselves in. Anyone who is a recipient of HB would have less than £8,000 in savings and very possibly not have any real estate property. This isn't about the level of wealth in the estate for Probate.
The OP needs to keep this simple, keep it brief and get closure and the property re let, by means of the cheapest option.... Read More

Reply to the comment left by MP123 at 22/04/2020 - 12:37So how does this help? - as the deceased tenant isn't in Social Housing.
The simple truth is the tenancy passes on to the estate, as has been stated here. But given that the tenant was a recipient of HB, then there will be a cut off point for this, which can sometimes be very, very soon.
You as Ll or the agent must by law notify the DWP or LHA of the death.
Then the rental payments are paid from the estate or if you have a guarantor it then becomes their responsibility. So the sooner you make contact and present the facts, making all parties aware and that there needs to be a One month notice and a Deed of Surrender signed.

After this the property then needs to be cleared of the former tenants belongings.
Not a pleasant time, but one of practicalities and for you not to be overly sensitive.....remember it's a business, and you played no part in this death.... Read More

End of Tenancy, Tenant's Belongings, Tort Law and "Lockdown"?

Yes agree with you there Gary totally. The LA hasn't responded yet to my emails regarding this, nor given me any advice. They have said that he has been notoriously difficult and obstructive from the start. However they have booked in the checkout clerk for Thursday. Guess it's a wait and see thing!... Read More
