Hello my name is Alex and I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply as this is not an ‘on demand’ live service, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return. There is no need to wait here, you will get an email when I reply.
Have you spoken to the Association about assigning the agreement please?
I would speak to the Association.
Normally a tenancy can only either be assigned with consent of the Association or what is called succeeded.
In order for there to be a succession the person named on the tenancy has to die.
Then whoever remains needs to be related and have been there for 12 months.
But succession can only happen once.
If there is no succession because the tenant has not died then you can only ask for the tenancy to be assigned.
Yes it is
That is what I am saying a tenancy can only be assigned or a succession
If they say no then you must rely on any right in the tenancy agreement.
If the tenancy agreement does not allow for it to be assigned then in law there is nothing you can do
I am sorry if this is not necessarily the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Again, you need to check the contract. It needs to say it can be assigned.
If not, then you can not.
