Hi, thanks for your enquiry.
In these circumstances, it would be normal for your husband's Will to grant you a right to remain in the property for as long as you wish/anything happens to you. It would also normally say that you will be responsible for maintaining the property and arranging the necessary Buildings insurance. Whoever your husband appoints as Executors of his Will are under a duty to make sure you comply with these conditions, and it is never a good idea with the children to be appointed if there is likely to be a conflict. Therefore, hopefully your husband can appoint 2 independent/family friends to act as Executors and Trustees. If this happens, your husband's daughters will have no right to enter the property or meddle with it until anything were to happen to you.
I hope this assists and if so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
Please let me know if you require any further clarification.
You need to make sure that your husband's Will also includes a provision allowing you to downsize/buy elsewhere. Most Solicitors will include this provision as standard.
I hope this helps.
It all depends on what it says in your husband's Will- in respect of the property, it would normally grant you only the right to remain living there or in any substitutional property, with all the capital from any sale passing to the children. You do need to discuss this point with your husband.
Sorry to hear of the situation you are in.
Apart from leaving a set amount of money to his daughters, there is nothing else your husband can do.
From your point of view, your husband is under a duty to provide you with reasonable financial provision on his death, and although I can't of course confirm how much this would be, as it depends on all the circumstances of your case, there is is a security measure for you if the worst ever happened and you felt you had not been treated as you should have been.
I hope I have answered your original question, and if so, would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
