An American landlord has demanded fees from a former tenant, because he ended his lease early when he died.
Danelle Eckert received a letter addressed to her and to the estate of her son, Colin Byars, from CCRT Properties. It demanded March and April rent, late fees and an “early termination fee” because he had left his apartment before the end of his lease. Byars, a 24-year-old teacher, was killed in February.
“I thought they must not understand that Colin was killed. But no, they understood completely” Eckert said. The management company had been advised by their legal representative that they should go after the rent and fees.
