Safe tenants can exchange real estate with another safe tenant from the Housing Executive or housing company as long as they have permission from their landlord. Safe tenants have a right of succession. This means that in the event of the death of a safe tenant, the lease can be transferred to a close relative who lived 12 months before their death with the safe tenant. If one tenant dies, the rental agreement automatically passes to the other tenant. When a lone tenant dies and the tenant`s spouse was living with him or her at the time of death, the spouse inherits the lease. Every rent you charge is part of your household income. If you receive benefits, you must inform your tenant`s social security authority. You must also inform the Housing Executive Housing Benefit Unit of the amount of rent you will receive if you are entitled to a housing allowance. .
