tdlawyer :

Hello, thank you for your question. My name is Tony, I can assist with this.

tdlawyer :

The rights tht she has will really be down to the employment contract or tenancy agreement that her husband had with the employer. Normally, the right to remain will end if husband's employment ends. These types of tenancies aredifferent from the usual professional/commercial tenancy, whereby rent is paid per month to the landlord.

JACUSTOMER-dsujh9ea- :

There is no tenancy or contract of employment . The house was in lieu of a pension when he retired 30 years ago.
