    Yes good question Hagalout.

    House is divided up as Tennants in common.
    In that case you can obtain a valuation for the property and, unless there is a note on the proprietorship register, assume your father owned 50%.
    Assuming there are no other claimants that share becomes you and your brothers property, and you can of course allow your father's partner to continue to reside there rent free although she remains liable for all running costs such as insurance council tax etc etc.

    This will give you the figure necessary to start to complete HMRC forms and then obtain the grant which should then give you access to any accounts .

      Thank you, Des8 and Avi777, I found myself in exactly the situation I describe as told before in my previous posts. My mother carried on regardless as mentioned but when she died her partners grandson put a caveat on my probate application in My position as my mother's executor, he insisted it was down to me to sort things out yet I had no authority over his grandfather's will. It still goes on almost 4 years later with me thousands of pounds out of pocket

          Well in that case I really think your best option is to attempt a dialogue with his partner

            Thanks for your advice. Not sure how much help she would be. I donít think sheís been very forthcoming so far.
