Death of the Tenant

.... Contact Wishaw and District Housing Association as soon as possible

We realise that it is a sad and difficult time for people when a loved one dies but unfortunately there are things that the family are required to do in order to make sure that the tenancy is ended correctly.

We are keen to make this process and all your dealings with Wishaw and District Housing Association at this time as easy as possible for the family and we would ask that the next-of-kin or executor contacts the office as soon as possible. We would also ask that you take the time to read the Associations guidance leaflet "A Guide for Next of Kin or Executor on Terminating a Tenancy".

However, before any formal action to end the tenancy is taken, please make sure that there is no-one that has succession rights or rights to the tenancy under the Matrimonial Homes Act.  If you are unclear as to who may have rights to the tenancy please contact Wishaw and District Housing Association's Office for further advice or visit our section on Succession.
