Thanks for your enquiry.
On the basis that your Grandmother's Will did not grant you any right to remain living in the property, then I am afraid to say that you have little security to remain living there. On the assumption that you have never paid any rent, you are a "Licensee" meaning that the Executors of the Will can now ask you to leave. In these scenarios, 4 weeks notice is normally deemed adequate notice. If you do not leave, they would still need to apply to Court to obtain a possession Order but I trust that neither party would want this to happen. If you had been paying rent, then you are classed as a Tenant, and likewise, notice can be given by the Executors, asking you to leave.
I am sorry this is not the answer you were looking for, but it sets out the legal position.
Hi, do you continue to pay rent tot he Executors?
As you are no longer paying rent, you have what is called a Licence agreement, and as mentioned previously, this agreement can be terminated by the Executors giving you notice- 4 weeks is normal. I'm afraid you don't have any more security to remain living in the property than that. and likewise, there is nothing stopping you from giving notice to the Executors that you would like to move out.
I am sorry my answer can't be any more favourable, but this is the legal position.
If I have answered your question, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.
All the best.
