“What happens to a tenancy when a tenant dies?” is one of the most common questions posed on our advice line. It is important for landlords to understand the law relating to succession and inheritance of tenancies as well as discretionary rights which may allow a person to be granted a new tenancy after a tenant dies. Donna McCarthy will take you through these key legal principles and how they can be applied in practice.
