Woman that’s been renting same home for years finds out deceased landlord left home under her name

When Jane Sayner’s landlord, John Perrett, a wealthy Melbourne property owner, passed away,

she faced potential uncertainty about her housing. At 75, Jane lived comfortably in her St. Albans home, yet John’s death could have meant displacement if the property had been sold or the lease terminated.

Fortunately for Jane, John left a significant part of his estate to charity, and his estate chose to honor existing leases. Jane was able to stay in her home without the stress of relocating or re-entering the workforce, a testament to the impact of thoughtful estate planning and its effects on tenants.
