Survivor was not successor to secure tenancy
House of Lords
“Where a joint tenant of council property became by survivorship the sole tenant, before becoming a secure tenant on the introduction of such tenancies in 1980 she was not herself a successor within the meaning of the Housing Act 1985 so as to debar further succession.”
