i have a property in georgia, tenant passed away at his daughter's house (not in my unit), he is on month-to-month lease, rent is paid until jan 31, i contacted the family to take his stuff, they haven't responded back, how long do i have to wait for them? can i donate the stuff or rent it furnished? do i need to file any paperwork? thx!
How long ago did you contact his family?
about 2 weeks ago
First thing you need to do is review your stste landlord tenant regulations.
You need to begin the paper work based on your state landlord tenant regulations to collect February rent and give final notice to terminate lease at end of month based again on State regulations. At this time that will likely be end of March so they still will owe another months rent.
Remember their problem is not your problem.
