What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)? PA
My tenant died 4 months into our year lease agreement, a standard PA association of realtors residential lease. Her family has not established an estate yet. I have told them they must do that. Rent is due in April. My understanding is that the lease automatically transfers to the estate. But what happens if there is no estate by April 1? Do I consider it abandonment? Can I take possession of the dwelling (they will have her belongings out by Tuesday - they have her key)? I have a month rent security deposit, a pet security deposit, and two last months rent. Do I owe anyone anything? What if the family raises the estate after I have already rented the dwelling to another tenant?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?What is the name of your state (only U.S. law)?
