When did all this happen?
The two daughters who are involved with the house: are they the mothers of the grandchildren?
One of those daughters has raised the mortgage on the house and given the money to the other daughter (her sister) presumably to buy out her share? Is that it?
Who applied for probate to allow them to deal with the house and if so, what happened to the will? The executors of the will?
It would be useful if I knew exactly who was related to who and who has what.
Perhaps it’s worded differently: six grandchildren inherited a property from their grandmother.
The children’s two mothers have dealt with the property between them and it’s now registered to be one of their names and one of them is living in the property and has paid off the other.
Is that the scenario?
Have any of the children approached their mothers?
The background detail would be helpful please. Thank you.
So, 2 years after Mrs K wrote the will leaving the property to the 6 grandchildren, for reasons unknown, the property was put into the name of the grandchildren’s mothers?
When the property was mortgaged by one of the sisters/grandchildren’s mother, as the property still in joint names of the 2 of them? Who is now named as the proprietor of the property? There is nothing attached to your reply.
Who apply for probate? Who were the executors of the will? When did Mrs K die?
Have the children spoken to their respective mothers about this?
The most important question here is surrounding the transfer to the 2 sisters, children’s mothers, in 2004 as to why that was done.
It may be that Mrs K left the property to the grandchildren in the will and then decided either to transfer the property to her two children (the grandchildren’s mothers) forgetting that she had left it to the grandchildren in her will but intended her children to have it or she may have transferred it to her two children (the grandchildren’s mothers) to be held on trust for her grandchildren until the grandchildren reached 18.
If she transferred the property to the two sisters/mothers intending them to have it and forgot that she had left it to the grandchildren in the will, then there is nothing that can be done about the provision in the will because at that stage, she no longer owned the house.
