Death of the Tenant
.... Contact Wishaw and District Housing 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 us 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.
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's Office for further advice.
