Rochester Landlord Tenant Lawyer Discusses the Death of a Tenant
As a Rochester Landlord Tenant Lawyer, landlords often ask me what to do in the event that their tenant dies. First, you should never grant access to the apartment to anyone unless they are either an executor named in the will, an administrator, or the public administrator if they have no will. These individuals need to present a certificate from the surrogate’s court showing that they are the designated representative appointed by the court. Also, you may be able to file a claim against the estate for any unpaid damages or rent.
