Passing On Your Tenancy Banner

Certain Orwell tenants have rights in particular circumstances to pass their home and the tenancy that goes with it to another person.

Passing on a tenancy to a husband, wife, partner or to a certain family member on your death is called ‘succession’.

Transferring your current tenancy to such a person, for example, when you move to another home and pass your current home and your agreement to an adult son or daughter, is called ‘assignment’.

You may also be able to pass your home and your tenancy by way of a ‘mutual exchange’. This means two or more households swap with each other.
