Hello
Welcome to Just Answer
I am a Solicitor and will try and assist you.
I am sorry to hear about your loss.
Please may I ask:-
- what did the wills state about her children inheriting?
- when your wife passed away was the property in joint names? if so, were you joint tenants or tenants in common?
Kind Regards
Caroline

Hello
My apologies for my delay in responding to you.
Can I just clarify your response - is it the position that the property was previoulsy in both of your names as joint tenants?
Kind Regards

Hello
Thank you for conifrming that for me.
It is important that you check the position - so perhaps ask the SRA if they can tell you what happended to your solicitors files following him being struck off:
By post:
Solicitors Regulation Authority
Intervention Archives
Unit A
Colonnade Point
Prologis Park
Coventry
CV6 4BX
By email:***@******.***
By telephone:(###) ###-####9250
If you are Joint Tenants - then the property would have passed to you automatically under the right of survivorship and it would not have formed part of your late wife's will. You are then free to deal with the porperty as you wish and you could make a new will if you wanted too.
Kind Regards
Caroline
