Thanks for your question. Because your father was the sole owner and because he left his whole estate to your mother, what will happen is that once the solicitor acting for the executor obtains probate, he will then be in a position to register the title to the house in your mother’s sole name. So your mother isn’t on the deeds at the moment but the probate will form a link in title between you father’s name and that of your mother. The solicitor will have to deal with the transaction as it is something which requires specific knowledge of Property Law. Happy to discuss. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that JustAnswer credits me for my time.
