If you die, your partner, spouse or civil partner may be able to succeed to your tenancy, subject to meeting the relevant criteria.
They must be permanently living in your home for at least 12 months. This is what we call a 'succession to tenancy'. In this case, the person wishing to take over the tenancy will need to complete the online form below:
Apply for a succession of tenancy
We will process your application and tell you our decision.
If the person who takes over your tenancy dies, no one living with them will have an automatic right to take over the tenancy in the same way. In this instance, you should contact the Council for further advice.
