We believe there was no will? how could we check? She is now clearing out his house. Estate is probably worth only 500,000 pounds.
Ok thanks. Can you please clarify with a calculation showing what would go to who and explain what you mean by a life interest in half the remainder. Was the 250k based on 50% or is there some sort of cap in these situations? Thanks, dave
Thanks. Is there any process to contest this situation, on the basis that she has been out of his life for so long? She was living in a relationship of the nature of a marriage with another man for that entire time.
And just going back to my earlier question, is there a way to check if the deceased had a will - is there a register or similar that law firms use?
