Q & A: What happens when a sad death occurs and property is involved?
Question: My father has died. Do I need to get probate? He has a house that I am living in?
Answer: You will need to get probate if your father owns a house; it cannot be transferred into the name of another person without it. Happy to have a chat with you if things are complicated with anyone else who is named in the will and if you are anxious that you may have to move out.
