Thank you for the quesdotn. It would not be a case of the wife having no rights, however, if the daughter inherited the house, they have a right to have a copy of the keys. If this is the matrimonial home and the husband has passed the wife would likely have inherited the house. However, if there is a solicitor involved they will ensure all legal rights are being adhered to. If the wife is worried about being evicted down the line, they could look at obtaining a life rent. This would mean they have the right to remain in the dwelling for life regardless of who owns the property.
