Hi there. Thanks for your question, I will help you with this.
If nobody is living in the property and it isn't rented out, and bearing in mind it's in your name, why can't you break into it? It seems to me that you can if oblongs to you and nobody else lives there.
so although there have the keys and there mother is dead ther have no legal right to stopping me enter the proberty and change the locks to stop them entering/
Yes, if you own the property, and nobody else lives there - it's yours and you're entitled to go in and change the locks if you need to.
thank you very much for your help
