Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.

Your mother's estate would still be legally responsible for the rent due under the lease. However, the administrator of the estate would have the ability to issue a notice cancelling the lease due to your mother's death.....which would stop the obligation. But, if $750 is less than another month's rent, it may be the best option.

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
