If the tenant1 under a demoted tenancy2 dies3, and if the tenant was a successor4, the tenancy ceases to be a demoted tenancy, but it does not become a secure tenancy5. In any other case, where the tenant under a demoted tenancy dies, a person is qualified to succeed the tenant if:
(1) he occupies the dwelling house6 as his only or principal home7 at the time of the tenant's death8;
(2) he is a member of the tenant's family9; and
(3) he has resided with the tenant throughout the period of 12 months ending with the tenant's death10.
