Thank you for your question

My name is ***** ***** I shall do my best to help you.

Since the house is in his sole name you will have to apply to the Probate Registry for Letters of Administration so that you can transfer the property into your name at the Land Registry

You should phone you local Probate Registry

who will send you the necessary forms

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
