What to do after a tenant dies
We understand it’s challenging when trying to deal with someone’s death. The person who is dealing with a tenant’s estate and financial affairs can use this service.
It’s important to report as soon as possible after an MTVH tenant dies. A tenancy does not end when a death occurs. The tenancy must end or taken over. Rent will be payable until the tenancy ends and the keys to the property returned.
There are services available to provide practical help and support at this difficult time.
- Citizen’s Advice and Gov.UK have helpful information on what to do.
- National Bereavement Service helps those in need of support during the difficult time of bereavement
