Question we had pertaining to a deceased tenant

Martin Self Storage

A tenant has passed away and her family was continuing to pay on the unit. No one had ever provided the death certificate or proved who the Executor of the estate was, and they claimed that would get us the information at some point.

At this point, the contact info we had is invalid and the phone numbers are disconnected. The account is now 102 days past due.

How long do we have to hold on to the unit of a deceased tenant before we can auction it off. Online searches show different information, depending on the state, but I can’t seem to find the answer with regards to NC laws.

Can you help me with this?

Thanks in advance!

The answer is short and sweet. You treat it like any other late tenant. Unless you have been ordered by a court to hold this unit, due to probate or otherwise, you call sell. Make sure you give your regular notice as you would any other unit.
