I’m afraid that we are specifically not allowed to take instructions from here.
If the site were to be a source of potential clients, we would no longer be independent because we would have an interest in pursuing litigation. With no interest in pursuing litigation, we can be really objective with our view is to whether something has a good chance or a limited chance of success.
In any event, for logistical reasons you would be better using a local solicitor .
If everything’s been left to his wife in the interim, then you don’t need to actually do anything although ultimately if the property as tenants in common you are going to need probate for your father-in-law and when your mother-in-law dies, you are going to need probate for her.
Here it is from the government website:
Once you have probate you can then transfer the property from husband to wife and wife your husband/beneficiary.
To find a solicitor, you can search by postcode and specialism on the Law Society website
find a solicitor link which is at the top left hand corner of the page.
