I need to know exactly what the will says and what the situation is now.
A jointly owned house as tenants in common?
Ur husband willed his half to his two sons?
Has he left you anything?
I need fine details please. Thanks
yes, jointly owned as tenants in common
executors myself and 2 step sons
residuary estate - debts paid by myself
personal chattels to step sons
Letter of wishes - my husband states that it his wish 'the house is sold and his share of the net proceeds of sale go to his step sons.
Pension to me
antique furniture and paintings to step sons
I assume that you are not contesting the will.
You cannot take any loan without stepsons consent.
It is unlikely that any lender will lend without that.
Even so, it would come from your share even if they do agree. Can I help further?
is a letter of wishes a legal document? as the house is not mentioned in the will
Did he write a will?
How long were you married?
