Good evening, thank you for your question, I am sorry to hear that your wife is so ill. If your Will covers your worldwide assets then it may just be necessary to obtain a UK Grant for the UK properties. If your Will doesn't extend worldwide then it could be the properties would fall under the international intestacy rules so you would not be able to deal with them under your Wills but you would stil need a UK Grant. I would hope that you own them as joint tenants rather than tenants in common so that they default to you without the need for any other process.
If you live in Australia with UK assets then I would not recommend a 'homemade Will'.
Hello do you need further assistance?
Hi, if the properties are in joint names then you shouldn't need a Grant of probate, but you would not be able to get one until your wife passes away. That is so awful to lose your son.
The phone prompt is by the system so don't worry about it for now.
Yes, I can see that. We can catch up once you have the land registry information.
Do you have any further questions at this point?
Thank you, ***** ***** always contact me again if you need to.
