Succession can only occur on the death of the tenant and is the means by which a tenancy passes to someone else who is entitled under the terms of the Assured Tenancy Agreement on the death of the original tenant.
Assignment is where a person takes over the tenancy of an existing tenant, including their tenancy agreement and the terms of the tenancy. The assignment is to a person who would qualify to succeed the tenancy should the tenant have died.
Name Change is where someone wishes to change the name held on the tenancy, for example, following marriage, divorce, or after name change by deed poll.
