Okay, some of these make sense, like the ones where they aren't found for 3-5 years, because some people have money in the bank like that, but the lady that was dead for 43 years? Come ooooooon.
I don't undertand that one.

And if that's the case, it means they knew she was dead...
They even put sigils on the door from the outside.
There's a 'true' pasta out there about some /b/tards go into an abandoned bldg and find this hobo all mummified. They take pics, and find his journal. It's a very sad listing of how many aluminum cans he found each day
In there flat dead or in a flat with a dead woman?
I would discount either
Flat is the British word for an apartment.
Are we talking 0,3 ml here or 0,5 ? Anyways, I can see myself becoming this dude in 40 years or so.

It sounds appealing. I'd quit my job to die like this, but then I'd have to totally estrange my parents and brother. I could currently go six months without them wondering about me, but they'd probably start looking for me after that.
She was probably getting retirement checks and had an automatic payment set up for rent, and if they let her be declared dead, they would stop being payed.
It was in Yugoslavia. Utilities were paid by the state until the 90s, then when it broke from the ussr there were property disputes which disallowed anyone from entering the apartment. I'm betting it had to smell and draw bugs, but apartments in Yugoslavia already had bugs and smelled like shit, so it's still understandable.
Not exactly. If your rent and utilities are being paid and you don't work and you don't have anyone to report you missing then the cops aren't allowed to bust down the door until there is a smell or a ton of bugs. Yeah, it would get taken care of quicker in most American cities, but because of the smell and bugs, not because she hasn't come out of her apartment or responded to knocks. If you're not a missing person or a criminal the cops don't have the right to enter your home just because you don't answer the door.
It said in the article that it didn't smell because the windows were apparently open the entire time, which brings to question how the elements never posed a reasonable need to enter the apartment. Also, that doesn't cover the rent getting paid for over 40 years.
Who was paying the bills for over 40 years though? Also, that's BS, they can enter your home if they deem it a safety concern. The building owner could allow it with nothing but a 24 hour notice on the door, and right away if they decided there was a reason to go in that posed a threat to the property in question. Also, in America apartments are typically subject to annual inspections to make sure the property isn't being destroyed.
TL/DR: The cops can enter your home
