A tenancy is a special type of contract agreed by a landlord. The contract is with the tenant. Are there any circumstances in which a landlord is forced to continue to grant the same contractual rights to a third party?

This seminar, which is intended to be a thorough introduction for property and housing lawyers with no or limited previous knowledge of the subject, will consider how some tenancies can be inherited, passed on, and swapped.
