If the rent is registered then its likely (though not absolutely certain rent officers don't always get things right) then its likely to be (or at least to have been) a tenancy under the Rent Act 1977 (in which case s8 and s21. A lot depends on what happened when and, I appreciate, you don't know all the facts. It may be that there's no valid succession or it may be not. The likelihood is you would need some ground for eviction.
This sort of thing does happen.
I would advise going and having a talk to a specialist landlord and tenant solicitor.
