Hi one of our tenants has passed away, we are aware that there is a sister but have no contact details. We have put a letter through the door, requesting contact, but to date have had nothing. How long do we leave this until we gain access, and how can we do this as far as we are aware the flat is full of his belongings/furniture etc he was a housing benefit tenant too so I presume his benefits would have now ceased. We don't want to just enter without making sure we are doing this correctly, but are aware that rent is not being paid now and can only leave this a very short period of time, the flat also needs a full refurb as he was a heavy smoker and had been there some years. Any advice would be appreciated.
