There is definitely a chance of that happening. No one is under any obligation to honor her verbal agreement with you. I would maybe go to her bf and ask him about it. I’d be hesitant to ask him right away, as he did suffer a loss. It’s all really dependent on who takes over. Did she own the place? Or did she work for a company?

It all depends on who she had to receive her estate in her will.  If she didn’t have a will, her estate will go through probate where a court decides who receives her assets.  I don’t know what this means for you though.

Probably the moving across the hall might go out the window if she didn’t write it down somewhere.

you said she wasn’t the owner. if so, i’m guessing she was hired by the rental company and will soon be replaced. i wouldn’t count on anyone else keeping that verbal commitment.

AH. I see that now. Yep–all depends on the person who replaces her. I’d talk to them about it, but there’s no guaranty.

Technically, your landlord is whomever owns the property.  She was their employee (or if they hired a management company, that company’s employee).  Your lease shouldn’t been affected in any way.  However, as noted above, nobody is obligated to honor her verbal agreement for the other apartment.  I would wait until a new property manager is appointed and explain the situation to him/her.  Hopefully they’ll be willing to honor it AND get the maintenance person to fix it up.  I wouldn’t otherwise bother with the maintenance person.
