Tenant Died.

The Tenant Died, and her Grandson who she has had legal custody since he was 3 months old, still living in apartment. Since he was not on the Lease what is his legal standing for keeping the apt? Do I have to let him stay at current rent or can I raise the rent?

they will need to be screened and must qualify to lease the apartment other wise a no cause eviction could apply in this case.
In many cases, a family member living with a tenant who has passed away or left the apartment is protected under the law.   Such a family member would have "succession rights".  Whether or not you have succession rights as a remaining family member depends on the type of housing in which you live and the type of family relationship that you had with the departing tenant.
