my parents owned a house and paid off completely about 30 years ago. my dad died intestate,,l think,,,although l sometimes feel there may have been a will which was destroyed. Anyway l am his only child and my mother still lives in the house. Is she entitled to everything? the house is 5 rooms and she rents them out, l think she should give me some of the money as my dad did work hard to pay for it, but she has complete control. Am l legally entitled to do anything as shes very greedy and my dad would have been annoyed.
Hello thank you for your reply, lt sort of answers. l did check if l am on the titles and after dad died, my mum did put me on the titles, along with her son, my half brother as equal owners with her. The house is valued at £750,000. What l really would like to know is if l am legally entitled to any of the rent that is raised from the house.
She gets a very good pension from both her old job and state pension, there is no mortgage, it was paid for 30 year ago, and she makes £300 per week from rent, l need to know if l legally can say, l am entitled to a percentage of rent.
sorry i just wanted to ask, am l entitled to get any of his state pension as she gets it all as his widow.
so basically l am deciding from your answer that she was entitled to £250,000 and l was entitled to the £500,000 balance interest in the house, until l was asked to sign a paper that agreed to being a part owner with her and my brother.
Does this mean we are all entitled to equal shares? or is it the same as you discribed in your first email. Shes entitled to £250,000 one third,,, and that is what she is entitled to share with her son
The title just has our names, but does not allocate any percentage.
l am not sure what you mean.
l found out, no he did not sign his part over to me. so it as you initially said, so is it supposed to be
mum £250,000 plus possesions,?? which would mean shes entitled to share her £250,000 share with her son, Hence he is on the title, but really hes only entitled to some/all of her share??.
Or do you mean, me, mum and her son own an equal share, hence we should divid the rent equally
