I have been asked to look at this for you.
Does your brother-in-law have solicitors dealing with this or has he done it himself?
Normally, you would apply for an injunction to prevent the transfer of the property from your late father’s name to just your brother in law’s sole name but it can be dealt with either as a restriction or a unilateral notice. A restriction is probably better.
If that’s what you been told to do, then you use land registry form RX1 and send it along with land registry form AP1 and form ID1. ID1 needs a passport size photograph certified by a solicitor as being a true likeness. When I say you, I obviously mean your husband.
You may find that a strongly worded letter from a solicitor saying what’s been done and threatening a court application and an application for costs, may focus the mind without actually the need to get to court.
The restriction will stop the property being sold or remortgaged in the interim.
If you have a look at the forms (Google will let you have them) and let me know what you are struggling with, I can tell you what to put in the appropriate box.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
