Deceased – but still must pay S&CC?

On 17 June 2010, the Straits Times reported People’s Action Party (PAP) MP, Zainudin Nordin, who chairs the Bishan-Toa Payoh Town Council, as having said:

“Even after a person has passed away, the liability is passed on to the next-of-kin. It is possible to collect these sums.”

He was referring to service and conservancy charges owed by residents of housing estates.

We would like your views on this.

Should town councils collect S&CC owed by persons who have passed away?
