I am a solicitor.

What is the basis of his claim?

Customer: replied 16 days ago.
at this moment in time we don’t know ? He has told my sons that his wife is a 3 rd shear holder ??
Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 16 days ago.

That is not reason for you to worry. I could say that I own your property outright, that doesn't make me the owner. What counts is what is written and what the title says and any documents that are relevant.

All the best
