Our tenant has died. Who is in charge of terminating the lease and emptying the flat?

After a person dies, their heirs need to be determined. This is done by acquiring exhaustive genealogical records. Anyone can compile the genealogical records. Anyone who needs to determine the beneficiary of an estate to make decisions regarding the estate may start compiling extracts from the population register or parish registers. The heir determined in the genealogical records is responsible for terminating the lease and emptying the flat. If genealogical records reveal that there are no heirs, you must report the death of a person with no heirs to the State Treasury. The State Treasury will appoint an administrator for the estate, who must also manage any issues related to the rented flat.
