What happens to my tenancy if I die?

By February 26, 2017 No Comments

If you have a joint tenancy, the other named tenant will automatically take over the tenancy.

If you’re the sole tenant and someone living in your property wants to take over a tenancy this may be an automatic process or it may be at our discretion as to whether this should be approved. This will depend on the type of tenancy they have.
