Thanks for your answer regarding the missing /damaged contents that part of the answer was most helpful. However, I'm not sure the life rent has actually started yet as the contents and terms of the life rent have yet to be agreed and there's been no formal acceptance that our step mother wishes to benefit from the life rent despite being asked by the executor - she refuses to answer but continues to stay in the house. So perhaps a better worded question is, if the potential renter is refusing to meet with or speak to the fiar in order to negotiate the terms of the life rent can it still proceed?
