Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you wtih this.
For now please let me know whether it is a private landlord or the Council?
Its bad news then I am afraid.
If this was a Council or Housing Association tenancy there is a right to buy
But because this is a private landlord I am sorry to say there is no right to buy or even get a discount
I am sorry if this is not 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?
Just ask the Landlord.
Housing Association is a public body
For example Birmingham Housing Association rather than Bill Jones who is the Landlord
Does that help?
Ok you need to ask and check
Can I clarify anything else for you?
If this answers your question could I invite you rate my answer before you leave today.

If there has been no previous succession and this is a regulated tenant (which it is) then yes you can
But you can only do this once.
If there is a joint tenancy and it is now single because a person has died, that counts as one succession
But you can succeed but only once.
Does that clarify?
