This form collects crucial information from the Tenant to ensure that the Landlord knows who to contact in the event of an emergency or a Tenant’s death.
Document Last Modified: 10/18/2022
While you’ll hope to never need the information, Landlords need to know who to contact in the event of an emergency or a Tenant’s death. If you get a call that a Tenant hasn’t shown up to work for a few days, is severely ill, or has died, you need to know who to contact.
When a Tenant dies, their personal property, debts, and contracts pass to their estate. This means that Landlords cannot move their property but instead need to contact the family or executor to come and collect the property.
This is a stressful situation for all parties involved, but having the right information will make it go more smoothly and efficiently. With that in mind, it’s important to have all Tenants complete the Loss of Life/Emergency Contact Addendum when they sign the Lease Agreement.
This form is particularly important for Landlords that primarily rent to seniors or that have a high percentage of Tenants over the age of 65. If you did not include this as part of your Lease Package, it’s a good idea to have all Tenants complete this form as soon as possible.
