    Living above the shop - inheritance rights

    I grew up in the maisonette above my father's shop where I still live with my own children. I have lived here for 55 years. Currently I run the shop, the whole building is retained on a fully repairing/insuring commercial lease, with renewal rights under the 1954 act. The current lease is 15 years with upward only rent reviews every five years. My children, 18 & 10 year old twins, have lived here all their lives. Were I to meet my end, would they have any right to continue to live in their home ?

    One for Jeffrey methinks. I am not sure of the answer - its not a normal residential letting where successor rights are prevalent.
