Hi Mr Leone,

 

Thanks for your enquiry.

 

If your Father did not leave a Will, then his Estate is distributed in accordance with the strict rules of Intestacy (the rules pertaining to where someone dies without making a Will).

 

Under these Rules, your Mother would have been entitled to the first £250,000 worth of your Father's assets, to include the property.

 

If his Estate, including the house were valued at over £250,000 then you and your brother are entitled to the following-

 

Your Mother receives the first £250,000. Any monies over this amount are distributed so your Mother receives a life interest in half of whatever is left over

  • The children receive the other half of the residue in equal shares.
  •  

    Therefore if your Father left £250,000 or less, you are not entitled to anything.

     

    I hope this has assisted you and answered your question.

     

    Please let me know if you require any further clarification.

     

    Kind Regards

    AL
