This would depend entirely on the lease agreement (or any other contract or document) that you have executed with your landlord. One would need to have it examined by a professional to draw a proper conclusion. It is doubtful that your right to tenancy would depend on when your husband passed away. What are the terms of the lease and had you and your husband signed the lease jointly?
