It is a possibility provided that your ex husband makes sure that you are left it in his will.
If he changes his will you do not get anything.
If you leave the house in joint names as joint tenants then it passes to you automatically. But you are both liable for payment of the outgoings and if there is a mortgage you are both liable. But when one of you passes away the house passes to the other automatically.
I suggest the second is the best option.
I hope this makes sense and is of assistance. If there is nothing further
thank you for using my services.
If I have missed anything, or you have any further questions please let me know
If there is anything else in the future please do not hesitate to ask.
