yes last paragraph of question
No didnt move in before they died as had to convert into bedroon downstairs while i looked after him family are ok with me moving in but didnt know as i am not selling the property but my own do I have to split sales from my own house in four parts.
Your house is your own house and you are entitled to do with that as youwish. You don't have to sell it or keep it, or do whatever you do not want todo with it.
If the deceased persons will does not grant you the right to live in theirhouse then it must be dealt with in accordance with the will. It really is assimple as that. The fact that they granted you the right to live in it beforethey died is immaterial.
If they promised you the house and you did something in return for thatpromise, relying on the promise to your detriment, you may potentially have aclaim against the house in what is known as the legal doctrine of PromissoryEstoppel. It means that you can enforce the promise. If the other beneficiariesdecide to defend it, be prepared to spend thousands and thousands of pounds inlegal costs.

as i will get two parts of the house and i moved in would it be legal to pay the other two parts to the others in the will if they are in agreement and as they are family wont oppose it or do i have to get it in writing
There is no reason why you cant buy out their shares if you can agree the price with them. Any conveyancing solicitor will do the transfer for you. The process is slightly different but not unusual.
