Welcome to Just Answer.
I will be happy to assist with your question today. I need some time to consider this and compose a response. There is NO need to wait online because you will get an email when I respond. Sometimes it will be minutes, sometimes longer.
I apologise for any unavoidable delay, but rest assured I have not forgotten your question.
what do you mean your fathers will was ratifed after his death?
has she paid you anything (rent) to stay in property?
if possible would you want to force the sale?
I will not call you. In fact, the offer has now expired and I don’t have your telephone number.
There is no way of finding out when anybody dies although you can do a standing search at the Probate Registry to find out if the executors of the deceased have applied for probate. That is only of any use if the deceased person’s estate is big enough to warrant probate (house or shares).
A standing search has to be renewed every six months and depending on her range, it could take a long time.
Unless a bequest is stated to be free of inheritance tax, then the asset which is being requested carries its own inheritance tax so I can’t think why she would pay more.
