Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in the UK with 35 years of experience in private practice and I hope that I can help you with your question today. Let me just read your question and I will either give you an initial answer or ask you for further information. I aim to respond to you as quickly as I can but sometimes I may want to take a little time to consider your question so as to give you the best answer I can.
Your late sister’s share of your father’s estate passes to her estate. So if her main beneficiary is her husband he inherits whatever your sister would have inherited had she lived.
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
Rent, and indeed care fees, are a matter of contract. There are none here and no justification for payments to be made either way. I suggest you tell your brother in law that you will not tolerate his stupid behaviour and that the estate has to be wound up forthwith. Instruct your own solicitor if necessary.
