11. Sole and Joint Tenancies

Where the tenancy is in joint names then both parties to the tenancy have equal rights and responsibilities regarding the tenancy.

Where it is a sole tenancy, then in the event of the death or departure of the tenant, the remaining spouse or civil partner has full rights to the tenancy.

In the case of a concubinage, in the event of death or abandonment by the tenant the remaining partner only has rights to the tenancy if they have occupied the property for at least a year.
