Could you explain what you mean by 'I have the trust deed'?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
The trust deed between my dad and gran that details that 25% is being transferred to my dad on the front it says trust deed
Expert:  joannem1965 replied 4 years ago.
So your grandmother left 25% of a house to her son, your father. He has now died without leaving a will.

I need some more information please.
You say your mum and dad live in the property but you say that your father has recently passed away. These explain.
You also appear to live in the property.
Is your grandmother still alive? It seems so because you say that you live with her in the property, presumably with your mother who is still alive. Please confirm
Who has the other 75% of the property? Your grandmother?
Please bear with me this afternoon because I will be online spasmodically.
