Hello, thanks for your enquiry. Do you not own the whole of the property? Is it a house or flat? Kind Regards Al

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It is a bungalow and was bought in joint names
Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

Thanks. Normally, the whole of the bungalow would pass to you, upon your late wife's death. Do you know if that is correct? AL

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Upon my death the bungalow would be sold and the proceeds would be decided ocording to the terms of the will
Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

Thanks. What does the Will say as to whom should inherit the bungalow? Al

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
To be sold and the cash divided between 6 recipients
Expert:  Aston Lawyer replied 1 year ago.

Well, I am afraid that the Executors/Trustees of the Will would be entitled to ask your Daughter to leave the bungalow if anything were to happen to you. If she wanted to keep the bungalow, she would have to agree with the Executors to buy the bungalow/pay off the other recipients. If she wanted to do this, the required amount of money she needed could be raised by her taking out a Mortgage against the bungalow (if she could afford to do so). I hope this assists and sets out the legal position. Kind Regards Al
