Thank you for your question. I look forward to working with you to provide you the information you are seeking for educational purposes only.
The family would have to first contact the owner/landlord and ask for additional time to get out of the premise. If the landlord refuses, the only thing the tenant family can do is file a petition for probate in the probate court, have one of them named administrator of the tenant's affairs and then get a court order to grant them time to remove the property belonging to the deceased. That is all they can do and if not they need to get the property out by the end of the month.
