    Given that an AST can only be valid if the property is used as the tenant's principal home, if the PR doesn't use the property thus, how does the AST survive the death of the tenant?
    In that case the tenancy agreement itself must move in.

      Whilst a tenancy which is an AST may stop being an AST that does not mean it stops being a tenancy.

        would a section 21 served after the death of the tenant have any effect then?

          If no one is in occupation a S.21 is not needed since the tenancy is no longer an AST. S.21 notices only apply to ASTs. You just serve a common law notice to quit.
