    Unusual Situation

    My neighbour has died without a will and no next of kin. the state has taken over, will they carry on paying her landlord while they wait to see if anyone claims the money, or can he just have her stuff removed and re-let the flat?

    As the tenancy ended with the demise of his tenant, the property can be relet. HOWEVER, the contents can not be disposed of, they should be dealt with as shown here http://www.landlordzone.co.uk/uncollected_goods.htm in case a beneficiary is found.

      Thank You Snorkez,

      i wonder if the bank accounts will have been frozen, its not a situation I have come across before, no doubt the landlord will appear if his rent does not go in the bank!

        Sadly (for the landlord) this is one situation where a tenant can get out of a tenancy agreement without notice. (Rather dramatic - I agree) Rent is usually paid in advance, so the LL will have no right to further rent.

          Was the now-deceased neighbour a long-leaseholder or a short-term tenant (e.g. under the Housing Act 1988/ Rent Act 1977)?

            Short term tenant. The landlord is the long leaseholder.

              Hooper,

              Just post a new thread, I’ll lock this one for now, then remove it when the new thread gets going.

              Just to be clear (to everyone), here are some reasons why threads with names are edited or deleted.

              I made two separate requests (one direct and one through a referencing company) for a landlord / agent reference for the same tenant at the same address.

              I got two replies two days apart.

              The first said they had always paid within 7 days of the payment date and that there had...

              The underlay is the key.
              At home I use cheap carpet (because of pets) over good underlay.

              by davett
              I've done some searching and I see people asserting that the typical lifetime of a carpet is between 5 and 7 years. My question is, has this been established in court or is it just general knowledge?...

              Let’s be honest, most tenants don’t look after carpets as well as a homeowner. There is no point putting a quality in a rental when you can’t be sure how it will be looked after - a burn or a coffee / wine stain will ruin a decent carpet as well as a cheap one. I go for a bleach cleanable, mid...

              There was nothing about a default in the post I was responding to.
              The post said that there had been a hearing, so if there was a default, it would have to be some kind of procedural issue.
              If you don't turn up to defend a claim, there has to have been some kind of error in notification...

              Most of my carpets in my own home (good quality) are 15+ years old and still, with care, look perfect.

              Asking carpet people how often you need to replace your carpet is like asking a damp proofing installer whether you need damp proofing....

              With respect, the editing has changed the nature of my posts and title and it is not entirely clear to a reader what has and has not been edited. I am not happy with the posts or title as edited being attributed to me. I think the response a couple of posts up demonstrates that the edits have made it...
