Can my tenancy be transferred to someone else?
In most instances, you won't be able to transfer your tenancy to another person. A tenancy may pass from one person to another in certain limited situations, such as if you agree a home exchange. This is known as 'assignment'.
If you die, it may be possible for your tenancy to be passed on to someone else. This is known as 'succession'.
You may only carry out a succession or assignment with our permission, and by completing the necessary legal paperwork.
