My partner's father died and has a house which is not in his

Customer Question

My partner's father died and has a house which is not in his will. The will stipulates 'my belongings are to be sold and passed to charities'. Is my partner entitled to the house and what does he have to do? There is an executor not very forthcoming with information whether from uncertainty of his responsibilities or other we're not sure. We don't have extra money to fight big time but we do want to know what he can do, if anything.

Hello and thank you for your question.

Do you have a copy of the will and if so can you please scan it and attach the scanned file to your next post?
