Hi, thanks for your question. Just to confirm, you held the property as joint tenants with your father only?
Thanks for confirming - if it is as joint tenants on the title then you would automatically acquire the whole property at the time of his death. If it is held as tenants in common then his share of the property will pass to you so long as this is provided for in his will.
Your daughter and her husband do not have the right to take over the property and they must follow the correct execution of his will.
I hope this assists you. If you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for your question without a positive rating. Thank you.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a solicitor for more than 30 yearsAs a technical point if the property was held as Tenants in Common then the Executor (solely) DOES have the right of access especially if your father actually lived in the property
You have the right to go into the property as you are a joint owner.
The Executor also has the right to do so
I mean that your Daughter but NOT her husband has the right of access.
