I'd assume he's been living there long enough to count for something anyway.
many councils have stopped the automatic right for children of deceased tenants to take over the tenancy .It happened quite a lot that 1 person would end up living in a big 3 bed house after his/her parents had died which goes against most councils housing policies

I don't think they've actually stopped the succession. it's just that succession can only happen once. and even then they can apply to the courts for the house due to under occupancy. as long as they offer a suitable property in return for it.

AFAIK, it became very popular for offspring, who had left the family home years before, to pass money to their often pensioner parent(s) to enable them to buy the council house under RTB, knowing they would inherit it later.

could'nt this be used as way to get a tax break.

To be fair dont think it should be absolute that tenancy cant be passed on. I think if the relatives lived in the home with the tenant holder last 5 to 6 years. If it was passed down it will be under ocupied then council should be forced to find suitable alternative accomodation. Should not under trying times for family to make those homeless. I would argue too there should be short reprieve.
