A tenant of mine has recently deceased and a member of their family has mentioned to a third party that the tenancy will now legally be passed on to the next of kin (the daughter in this case) the daughter is not named on the tenancy agreement.

The agreement is a AST and is now a periodic tenancy.

I don't think this is actually right but would like clarification please.
