What to do when your sole trader letting agent dies?Make Text Bigger
I’m a landlord of two houses. I use an agent to manage them. He is a sole trader and really the business is him.
He was a terrific man and sadly he died last week.
I spoke with his widow when the rent for one of the houses didn’t come to me. She explained about his death and that the bank account to which the rents go in has been frozen by the bank.
I want to support her as much as I can, but at the same time need to ensure that I can recover the frozen rent and have the future rents paid into a safe account.
Can anyone offer any advice?
