In the event of a tenant's death, certain individuals, known as "statutory successors," have a legal right to inherit the tenancy. This process is referred to as "statutory succession." If you have a joint tenancy with another person and one of you passes away, the tenancy automatically transfers to the remaining joint tenant, provided that no previous succession has taken place. 

For sole tenancies, the right to succession depends on the specific type of tenancy you have. It is essential to review your tenancy agreement to understand the succession rights applicable to your situation. In most cases, only one succession is allowed, unless otherwise stated in your tenancy agreement, and there can only be one successor.
