Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
What has happened to auntie please?
Ok so Auntie moved out, she did not pass away whilst tenant?
Thanks. As you can tell I have been giving this some thought and looking up the law.
Its bad news I am afraid then, it will be a condition of Auntie's tenancy that she occupy the property as her principal home, she is not. Auntie went back home as you say. This means she is in breach of her tenancy agreement. Therefore you have no rights whatsoever in terms of the property.
If you had been living there for at least 12 months and if Auntie had died then you would be entitled to inherit the tenancy, but this has not happened.
She has in effect given up her property and is not living there. As such you are not entitled to stay.
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?Alex
