The couple owned property jointly and the wife passed away on the 5th September and the husband passed away on the 8th September. The wifes family have the property keys, am I legally ok to have the locks changed as I am a member of the husbands family
The couple left mirror wills therefore no executor as they nominated each other. The couple had no children hence why each side of their family is acting for each of the couple. I am related to the husband who died after the wife but the wifes family has the keys to the property and are reluctant to release them to me. Therefore I am just trying to check if I have a second lock added so that we both need to be in attendance at the property, if this is legal for me to do so?
I am in possession of the husbands death certificate as I am arranging his funeral
