Hi Jeannette
Thank you for that information.
The starting point is for you to apply for Letters of Administration of your late husbands estate.
This can be done in person at the local Probate Registry (try yellow Pages) and you need to phone for an appointment.
Once you have the Letters of Administration then if the Land is Registered you will need to have an AS1

prepared transferring the property into your name and this will then need to be Registered at the Land Registry.
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further clarification
