What provisions are there in the law for the death of a tenant. They paid first,last and a deposit when they moved in. Now the landlord does not want to refund the last months rent because they did not receive a 30 day written notice. The origional rental agreement was a 6 mo lease that converted to a month to month at the end of the six months. The tenant died suddenly on the 15th of march. The landlord was notified via telephone of the death. All personal property was removed and the unit cleaned by the 31st. Can the landlord withhold the last months rent?
