Can my step mother put my father's house on the market, without informing brothers who are in his will and can she expect to receive all monies from sale of house. Though dad's will has not stated that she is entitled to any monies, to sell his home, even if her name appears on deeds. Just being able to live in his home was part of the will. Will my brothers get half the house price?
Do you have access to the deeds of the house? Do you know whether it is held as joint tenants or tenants in common?#
Did he get married after rewriting his will? Did the will mention that he was getting married?
Thank you for getting back to me.
I feel that l need to get more information to you, before carrying on with your service.
Thus I will not at present continue to send further emails and hope that one of my brothers contacts you instead.
The reason I ask is that if your father wrote in and did not mention getting married in it (written in contemplation of marriage), and he then got married after writing the new will, then any provisions with regard to anyone other than his new wife are void.
