From your narrative the house was left to your last father's grandson with you and your brother having a life interest. For that reason you can't register the title in your name. You have no legal right to do so. Whoever pays for the upkeep is not relevant I'm afraid. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am creditd for my time.

Thankyou for your answer and time.I love this place so will continue to enjoy and pay the price accordingly even though it pains me, as I seem to have to carry the financial burden all my life on my own. Even caring for my Father whom I adored when he could no longer look after himself.Just pulled the short straw I suppose.M
