MILWAUKEE — When Deana Barber got a hold of a letter from her dad’s property manager, she couldn’t believe what she was reading. Even though he died, he still had to pay rent.

Her father, Robert, is a Vietnam War veteran. He died in his sleep inside his Milwaukee apartment days before Christmas.

Deana says her dad’s property manager, BG Lein Management, sent her father a letter after he passed away. It stated since he “vacated the property” they were “withholding the entire security deposit” and that he’s responsible for rent through January.

Deana tells TMJ4 News when she called the company, a representative explained her dad broke his lease by dying.
