A lease that loses its security status due to elimination outside the circumstances described in the two points above cannot regain its security thereafter. A temporary/flexible rent is maintained until the transfer as part of the management of the deceased`s estate.  As long as there is no procedure for transferring family assets, the lessor can apply to the court for possession. While these are the Council`s guidelines for all EROs, the Commission also expects these standards to be met in all HMOs to promote quality housing and fairer market conditions. They told us that they would try to use other laws to bring non-granted EROs to that standard whenever possible. A flexible tenant may be advised to get advice when making a will to ensure that their lease is disposed of as desired. See also “Where the Tenant Leaves No Will” below. Whoever can obtain the lease depends on the date on which the lease began: there was no secure tenancy and therefore the estate right on the leases before October 3, 1980.  Prior to that date, after the death of a tenant, it was customary for the landlord to create a new lease for a member of the tenant`s family. Thus, if the new tenant dies (before or after 1980), a successor is not excluded from the succession of the lease, since an earlier succession has already taken place.
 If a tenant dies, the tenancy agreement passes through survivors to the other tenant. If the tenant has not left a will and there has been no legal estate, the tenancy agreement will be returned to the public agent (unless the next tenant of the deceased tenant`s family accepts an administrative letter authorization to the estate). The mechanism that will follow it differs depending on whether the lease is periodic or temporary (including flexible). Note that a joint tenancy agreement, periodic or temporary, belongs to the remaining tenants by “survival” and not by inheritance (see above). If there is a common secure tenancy agreement, there can be no legal succession of a person who would otherwise succeed after the death of a safe tenant (see “Successful Beneficiary” above).  The rental agreement is always addressed to the surviving tenant. A new additional authorisation regime was approved at the Council meeting on 19 March 2020, although the regime was frozen due to the COVID19 pandemic. The city council will resign three months before the plan is introduced. In certain circumstances, an estate is considered to have intervened and therefore excludes an additional estate, unless the lease agreement no longer authorizes an estate (see above): a single temporary rent, safe or flexible, does not automatically pass to the successor.
