A friend left the house to my Mum when he died. I have lived in the house for the last 15 years with my parents, hence I would like to claim it.
Thanks for the answer, this is disappointing. I assume there is no way that my Dad or I can continue living here if my Mum passes. Is that correct? I'm not really bothered about owning the house, we just don't want to be lose our home and Mum isn't very well at the moment.
No I haven't. My Dad saw it and he says all he remembers is that it said she had the right to live here until her death as long as she paid for the upkeep and maintenance of the property. Sorry, I know that's probably not very helpful.
Are there any circumstances where we could remain living in the property if Mum passes? I'm not so concerned about myself, it's more my Dad. I don't want him to lose his home if the worst happens.
Thanks for your help so far.
