to try and cut very long story short! I have been searching about "wills" house owner ship after a spouse dies etc etc
I have found out some info and thought I would pass it on (although a lot of you may already know) also please don't quote me it is only what I have read and therefore have not got it directly from the horses mouth so to speak.
If you have your own home and bought it is Joint Tenants (Beneficial tenants or Tenants in Common) it is a very important piece of wording on the "Land Registry Deeds"
If you make a will (I will use imaginary people here)
Jack and Jill were married and owned their own home, then Jack died and made a will leaving his half of the house to Billy (whoever Billy is son etc)
he could only leave it to Billy if Jack and Jill were "*tenants in Common*" as Jack owned half the house, Jill owned the other half.
If Jack and Jill owned their house as " Beneficial Tenants "(joint tenants") then Jacks half of the house would go directly to Jill (even if Jack had made a will and left his half to Billy.)
I believe this is when the value of house/assets are under £250.00
maybe worth checking your Land Reg details ...you usually find the information on the second page where it says " Proprietorship Register
It could make a difference as to whom gets the house etc. as I say I am not a lawyer but have read quite a bit on the subject today!
hope it makes sense. (not sure if it applies to partners that arnt married) I didn't get that far.
