The will states that I should pay my father's wife the value of his share of the property (which was 1/3rd). In the title deeds to the house his share falls to me as joint tenant. So payment to her is an act of goodwill. My brother and I are joint executors.
PS: 'seek/re-mortgage house' should read 'sell/re-mortgage house'
Has her son and daughter in law any 'squatters' rights?
That seems straight forward. My next question is about my right to enter and reside in the property. Can they stop me (by changing locks etc.) entering and residing in the property. If so, what are my remedies?
