Estate agents have been accused of cashing in on Heath Ledger’s tragic death by hiking up the price of his New York apartment.

The Dark Knight star died in the rented Soho flat after taking an accidental overdose of prescription drugs.

The three-bedroom home is being advertised for $26,000 (£13,000) a month – said to be $4,000 more than its previous price.

‘You don’t wait around in a hot rental market like this,’ an estate agent tells the New York Post.

‘As ghoulish as it sounds, people will rent that place in a heartbeat.’

Heath, who was 28 when he died, left behind a daughter Matilda, 3 next month.
