THE HOUSE WAS BOUGHT IN GOOD FAITH WITH MY SISTERS BLESSINGS BUT MY MUM DIED WITHIN A YEAR AND THE
MONEY I GIVE FOR THE HOUSE WAS STILL IN THE BANK AND SPLIT EVENLY BETWEEN US.BUT NOW THE PROPERTY IS WORTH A LOT MORE THAN I PAID FOR IT THEY SEEM TO THINK THAT THEY ARE ENTITLED TO MORE. FOUR YEARS AGO
I PUT THE HOUSE IN JOINT OWNERSHIP WITH MY WIFE OF 24 YEARS.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
SINCE I BOUGHT THE HOUSE I HAVE HAD CONSIDERABLE WORK COMPLETED THE ENTIRE HOUSE IS IN DIFFERENT
STATUS PAID FOR BUY MY WIFE AND MY SELF.

I'V BEEN WAITING FOR A REPLY FOR OVER THREE HOURS
Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
Thank you for your question.
Sorry for the delay. I was looking at your mantra rive and wondering if you were going to give any more information as to why your sisters thought they were entitled to a share of the house. As I understand it, you paid for the house and your sisters actually got money from your mum's estate being the money you paid for the house.
They are entitled to nothing more. You were good enough to to buy the house to ensure your mum's security towards the end of her life. In doing so you secured an investment for yourself which you are entitled to. Your sisters are entitled to nothing more.
I hope this helps. Please leave a positive response so that I am credited for my time.

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Is there any way my sisters could block us selling our house? We heard that it could be done through the Land Registry
in Durham and take us to court.
I,M GOING TO WORK NOW SO IT MIGHT BE LATE TONIGHT BEFORE I REPLY
Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
They could ask the court to stop a sale pending them litigating. However, as advised I don't see that they have any case for the reasons I have already mentioned.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Thank you again you have eased our minds, Just one last question is there any reason why we cannot sell
our house without problems.
Expert:  JGM replied 1 year ago.
No, there isn't any reason.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
