Passing of a tenant
Asset Storage - Jack Barnes
We recently were notified of the passing of one of our tenants. The daughter is listed as an Alternate/Emergency Contact and Additional Authorized User. The Rental Agreement says "Lessor may cut the lock and/or provide gate code at request of those listed above. Additional user does not have tenancy rights." The daughter has already agreed to continue to make rental payments on the unit. She also wants to know what will be required for her to remove all of the contents. My question: what is required before we turn over the contents of the unit to the daughter? Do we require that she, or some other person be assigned by the courts as the executrix/executor for the estate before we can allow any action be taken on the contents? Or, because she is listed as an authorized additional user, can she take control of the contents? Thanks.
