1. Dear Marion, I will be happy to help you. However, can you please first explain a few details. Whose name was on the title deeds to the house at the time of your father's death in December 2000? Have you checked the title deeds today to the house? Whose name is ***** ***** title deeds today? What did your father's will state about the house, if he left a will? Is your "Nan" your grandmother? Did she inherit the house from her husband, your grandfather?
2. Dear Marion, if your father's name wasn't on the title deeds, then he never owned the house, I regret to say. From what you set out, it appears as if your father has a misguided belief that he owned the house when this was not the case. If one person, such as your Nan's name is ***** ***** title deeds, then she is the owner, I regret to say. It also appears that your father mislead you in telling you that you would inherit the house, when it was not within his capability to leave the house to you, as he didn't own it. This is particularly stark where your grandfather was no longer living with your Nan, who was now having nine children by a different man. I regret to say that you cannot make a case based on the mistaken belief of your father that he owned the house, when in fact he didn't, even if he mislead you that he did.
