My elderly tenant passed away in January.

Her adult daughter continued to pay the rent till September on her deceased mother’s behalf to continue to have access to the house and her mom’s belongings.

She has now stopped paying the rent and has been unresponsive for weeks. She did not respond to a 15-day Pay or Quit notice either.

She is not on the lease, the property is vacant.

Can I simply take possession and change the locks? Or is there anything else I need to consider here?
