Hello I am a solicitor with 20 years exeprience. I will try to help you with this.
You as an unmarried partner can succeed to a tenancy in these circumstances if you were living there as your only or principle home for more than a year prior to death. There can only be one succession so if your partner was the survivor of a joint tenancy in the past at this address you do not have the right succeed
will this succession allow me to stay in the property or can the council move me to another property.
No you can stay there as a full council tenant (I am assuming your partner was a secure tenant) and if you wish to move you can negotiate a swap if you want.
The Council have said that they may want to move me to another property depending on whqat the Housing management say They sent me a succession form
You are in a position of stregth, they can not force yo to move so only move if you want to.
thanks i think they are saying that the property is a three bedroom and they may want this for aq family and that they will decide
my partner was a secure tenant
great, they can not evict you so you may be able to get somewhere nice if they want the larger property back
Thank you so much ,I am so relieved that I can stay where we hoped we would be together and as we are pensioners live the rest of our lives here,this is wonderful news.
Kindest Regards ***** *****
