Hi, thank you for your question. If your husband passes away the property will not form part of his estate if it is only in your sole name as he has no legal interest in the property.

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.
