Good morning thank you for your question, I am sorry to hear that you lost your mother. Did your mother leave a Will? Also do you have a copy of the land registry title information for the property please that I could see?
So really I would need a copy of the will and the land registry information to be able to confirm where you stand.
So is your step father living in the house?
Strictly speaking it will be sold and the equity release will be paid off first. He won't have to sell it back to them. It depends if the house is in your mother's name or both their names and it depends on the Will your mother left, I cannot advise you without knowing that information. If the house is in joint names then it will default to your step father and the Will won't override that I'm afraid.
Thank you, ***** ***** could get the land registry information that would help, see below
