Did you live in the house from the date she gave it to you ?Did your mother live there too ?Was the house specifically gifted in the Will to you or has the court simply decided it forms part of her estate without specific reference being made to the property in the Will?Who disputed that you were entitled to the house after your mother's death ?On what grounds did they dispute your entitlement?What reasons did the judge give for the decision made in court?I have to come offline shortly , even JA experts run out of milk, but I will be back on line in a few hours.Best regardsMichael
