Who does succession apply to?
A remaining joint tenant will qualify for ‘survivorship’ to the tenancy (this means the tenancy transfers into their sole name).
A spouse will have an automatic right to succeed, unless there has been a succession on the tenancy before. This is because succession of a tenancy can only happen once.
Family members may be able to succeed, but this will depend on the type of tenancy they have.
