Hello I will assist today.

Clause 5 basically means that on your death etc, the actual tenancy agreement remains valid, obviously the landlord would not be able to claim from you in that event, but your daughter will still remain liable for the agreement during its period even in the event of your death or bankruptcy.

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
No please leave it

It is all standard clauses.
