If your landlord passes away, as the tenant, you are still obligated to pay rent. Who you pay rent to depends on who is now representing your landlord. This person must provide proof that he is the personal representative of the deceased tenant. Often, it will be written in your deceased landlord’s will who the representative will be. Additionally, this rule is true even if your landlord’s property has been given back to the State. You are obligated to pay any rent due prior to or after the death of the landlord up until the end of your lease.
