What happens to your tenancy after death?

The right for someone to inherit your tenancy when you die is known as succession and can only be used once.

Succession to a council tenancy depends on:

  • Your relationship with the tenant
  • The type of tenancy they had
  • When the tenancy started

Contact your Neighbourhood Management Officer (NMO) to discuss your circumstances and find out where you stand.
