- Episode 278:My Landlord Died! Is My Lease Still Valid?
What should the tenant do when the landlord dies during the term of the lease? What if the lease is month-to-month and there is no term? Can the landlord's heirs evict the tenant to sell the house and cash in on their inheritance?

We have a few listener-related landlord/tenant questions on this week's episode of the Crushing Debt Podcast. Thank you for sending these to us and keep them coming!
We also discuss the CDC Eviction Moratorium - when does it expire / will it ever expire? You can hear more about the moratorium(s) in Episodes 261, 255 and 239.
Did you know about the Protecting Tenants At Foreclosure Act? What happens if your landlord is foreclosed mid-term? Whether you're allowed to stay through the end of the lease term depends on who buys the home.
There was a Federal version of the Act which has been mirrored under Florida Law (and become effective upon the expiration of the Federal Act). You can find Florida's version of the Act here: Statutes & Constitution :View Statutes : Online Sunshine (state.fl.us)
We also give a brief Hurricane Elsa update (spoiler: we're fine).
