My nan passed away last year probate everything done

This answer was rated:

My nan passed away last year probate everything done and house on the market. I am an executor along with 2 others. 50% of the house is owned by one of them the other 2 the other 50%. The other one has asked to move into whilst it being sold and will pay rent, question - can we stop him as I don't think he would move out when needed.

Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.

My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.

The party who wishes to live in the house can only do so with the consent of the other beneficiaries and Executors. The only alternative to this is if he is actually allowed to do so in the Will, i.e. given the right to occupy the property for a certain period or until he no longer wishes to do so, which does not appear to be the case here.

On a side point, even if you were all in agreement to him moving in and paying rent, this is not a good idea as this might create a type of Tenancy, granting him rights to remain the property and of course therefore make it more difficult to remove him, once the Sale gets near to completion.

I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.

Kind Regards
