One of our tenants died and their son/partner is still in the house. They were never named on the lease and we prefer not to create a new tenancy as they are in receipt of benefits and will not be entitled to the full rent as he is single and under 35. What is our legal position if we want to evict them? are they considered tenants or squatters?
