I have a unit up for auction. Sale ends in a few days. Tenant moved stuff in in June and has never made any contact or payment since. All of the sudden yesterday a lady calls says that she is the ex-girlfriend and that is her kids [email protected]
!# in the unit. Says that ex-boyfriend died September 23rd (then says September 21st when I questioned her about it again). I told her I have no record of him diving. As a matter of fact someone signed the tenants name on the certified letter. (note I didn't think to compare signatures yesterday when she called, will check that in the morning) I have done an obituary search and can not find anything about him dying and he does live local. She wants to bring $500 and know if I'll work with her. I told her I could not do that since the unit was not in her name and I have no proof that he died. I told her I needed a death certificate and who was in charge of his estate in order to stop the sale. Am I correct in doing this?
