My father and his 4 brothers were left a property in wales

Customer Question

my father and his 4 brothers were left a property in wales in the will of my great aunt sometime in the 1950's, it has been used as a holiday home for the whole family, over the years uncles have died leaving no will and now the last of the brothers has died leaving no will (that I know of), who owns the property now? is it the children of the last brother to die or would it belong to the children of all the brothers?
