Hello, my name is ***** ***** I’ll do my best to assist you today.
Please bear in mind as this is an email service and not live chat I may not respond immediately.
What is the restriction that you are seeking to remove?
Thanks. I am assuming as a result of the restriction you had a tenants in common agreement? Did you have specified shares of the property?
Did your wife leave a will and specify where her share was to go to?
OK, thank you. I'll try to clarify for you.
How much is the property worth, roughly, and were you still married when she passed away?
Has probate been applied for?
OK, thank you.
It appears that you owned the property as tenants in common, which means that you each owned a specific share of the property. However, as the value of the property itself is below the threshold of £250k as there was no will, her share would come to you.
So, you are correct in that everything should have come to you.
You need form RX3 to cancel the restriction:
The form you need to remove your late wife's name from the register is here:
I hope this assists.
Is there anything I can clarify at this stage?
