Hello and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I will be very pleased to assist you. I'm a practising lawyer in England with over 15 years’ experience. Please be aware that although I will endeavour to reply to you promptly, I am also in full time private practice and so I may not be available to respond immediately and it may also take me a few minutes to prepare a reply. The site will notify you as soon as I respond. I look forward to working with you to answer your question fully.
I am very sorry to read of the above and I imagine how frustrating it must be. I will certainly try to clarify the position for you.
from what you describe, I understand that you have an issue or possibly a dispute with the housing association in relation to succession rights to your daughters boyfriends late father's flat. is that correct please?
I'm following up on the above. Without some further information from you as above, I am limited in what I can say on the matter but in the hope it is helpful nonetheless, I will provide you with the following broad answer. If you are able to kindly provide me with the above further information or if you have any further questions generally, I will be delighted to expand on the following - please just reply back to me in this case:
Notwithstanding the above, in general terms a housing association tenancy contains more limited succession rights than a council tenancy. I would need further information moulded to be specific but generally, a spouse is entitled to succeed to a housing association tenancy but other parties such as children would typically not have an automatic right of succession but rather succession would be determined by the terms of the tenancy agreement which will often be drafted to require the consent of the housing association to any potential succession.
Obtaining a copy of the tenancy agreement in this regard is likely to be important
I hope the above is of some assistance but if you have any further questions, please revert to me
