Although my brother in law is Scottish, they rent a cottage in Cambridgeshire, England. My brother in law is still living in the cottage, but my sister isn't. She moved a majority of her belongings out of the cottage prior to her accident and has stored them in our late father's garage, although she still has a few small belongings left back at the cottage.
She is currently convalescing with me and, once she's ready to take care of herself again (she has a fractured pelvis from the car accident), she will be moving into my father's bungalow whilst it's in the process of being sold.
She has put a deposit on a lovely little lakeside park home, but it's imperative that she retains all of her half of the inheritance from my father in order to complete the purchase. If her husband has any claim on her half of the inheritance, she won't be able to afford to complete on her home and move on with her life; that's what worries me, because she really deserves to be happy.
Thanks Clare; I look forward to hearing from you.
