Are you on title as joint tenants or tenants-in-common?
Then the property vested in you at the time of your former spouse's death. It has nothing to do with his estates that he has left. It does not form part of the estate.There is no reason why you would take your name off the title in any event but as the lawyer must know unless the lawyer is in China is that this property is now yours.I suggest that you tell the lawyer that the new wife has no claim to your house and have while yout former spouse was permitted to live in it during his lifetime title has now vested in you and you will not be relinquishing any interest in the house to his new spouse.Let me know if you need further clarification.
