If the property remains in joint names then you are going to receive at least 50% of it as a joint owner.
You may in fact receive all of the equity if the property is still held as "beneficial joint tenants" where the property automatically passes to the person who lives longest.
His Estate may be attempt to claim that credit needs to be given for any improvements to the property that has increased its value - and this may be an argument it would be worth negotiation on
I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
