(c)apart from this section, the contract would end in accordance with the contract-holder’s notice provision or the agreement.

(3)If one person is qualified to succeed the preceding contract-holder, that person succeeds to the contract.

(4)If more than one person is qualified to succeed the preceding contract-holder, the person identified in accordance with section 78(4) succeeds to the contract.

(5)Whether there is a person qualified to succeed the preceding contract-holder is to be determined by applying section 74 in relation to the preceding contract-holder; but S is to be treated as not qualified to succeed the preceding contract-holder.
