My father passed away leaving a will and his house to go to the grandchildren. I am an executor together with my neice. My sister wants a key and access to the house, she says she has every legal right. Has she?

Hello,

No she does not unless the house was left to her specifically.

If she doesn't like the fact that the house has not been left to her, she may challenge the Will if she has a valid ground to do so, within 6 months of grant of probate.

Hope this helps
