Hello, there will not be any inheritance tax to pay as this would have been addressed at the time of your father's death. Was it the whole house that he owned or just a half share?
There is no CGT to pay when the Life Tenant (your father's wife dies). There is a 'deemed' disposal, so if it is a long time before the house sells it will be the difference in value from when she dies until the date of sale, this is the period that is relevant for the CGT. The way to avoid that is to transfer the property to the four names if it could be many months before selling.
I don't think it matters if he was an executor, was he? In which case he held the property as a Trustee and not as a personal owner.
