    True. See Schedule 1 to Rent Act 1977 re statutory succession rights (limited, post-1988).

      Yes that's correct,

      I believe its only has to be a period of 6months though, continuous not part-time.

      As I said above, I think this is unlikely to happen........

      I do have another question,

      As the tenants are an elderly married couple - when one of them does 'pass on' will I have have grounds to evicted the other (going through the courts process) on the basis that a three bedroom house is unsuitable for one elderly tenant ??

        No. The cellar is your only solution.

                I think he means children with no clothes on. And all that implies.

                    Jeffrey is a sick individual and needs help. I'd also check his cellars!
