What to do if a tenant dies

We understand that the death of a family member or friend is a very difficult time. However, it’s important that you let us know as soon as possible if a tenant dies.

Certain members of the tenant’s family may have a legal right to succession (taking over a tenancy when a tenant dies is known as ‘succession’). If there is no right of succession then we will advise on the process for returning the property to us.
