I will go through your question and will get back to you with my answer shortly.
Meanwhile, please ignore any phone call request pop-up, they get generated automatically without any input from the expert, so I have no control over these requests.
What is your specific question, please?
If the house was solely in the name of your mother , then the secret sale is valid.
Does not matter if your mother consulted anyone else or not, legally ,the secret sale is perfectly valid.
Now, your step father need to check if he has any rights to stay at the council property for his lifer time, if not the owner ( your sister) can start proceedings to take possession of the property.
However, She would have to get court orders for evicting you and your step father .
I hope this helps.
If you need further assistance, please let me know.
In the meantime, thank you for using Just Answers. Best wishes.
You are welcome. Thanks again & stay safe.
