Assign your tenancy to someone else

When you transfer your tenancy to someone else this is called "assigning your tenancy".

A tenancy can only be assigned or succeeded once and can only be assigned under certain circumstances. For example, a tenancy can be assigned to your partner or child by gaining a court order, or you can assign your tenancy to someone who qualifies to inherit your tenancy.

You must tell us if you want to assign your tenancy.

Please contact us to find out more about assigning your tenancy
