As the demand for social housing increases so has the worth of a secure tenancy. With supply short and demand high there is a demand for succession. However legislative changes to the entitlement to succeed have brought fresh challenges. There are also questions to be dealt with regarding succession such as:

  • Joint tenancies and succession
  • Succession rights regarding married tenants
  • Succession rights of relatives
  • Disputes as to entitlement to succeed.
  • Under occupancy and succession

We can also advise you on unauthorised occupancy as a result of a failed attempt to succeed to a tenancy and any other associated litigation.
