Hi
How much is the house worth and what other assets did your father have?
Clare
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
We don't know how much the house is worth as it needs a lot of work done to it and my dad doesn't have any assets I just want to know if my name can be put on the deeds of the house so it can be passed down to my 20 year old son
Expert:  Clare replied 3 years ago.
Hi
In order to transfer the property in your name you or your mother will first have to obtain Letters of Administration of your Father's estate so that the property can be transferred into your mother's name.
Once this has been done then she can sign a Deed of Gift Transferring it to you.
An alternative, if you are an only child, would be to have a Deed of Variation prepared and signed so that the House is transferred directly to you from the Estate
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
