System of Law: England-and-Wales
HiThanks for your question. If the property is held as tenant’s-in-common this means that your husband’s share would pass according to his Will or under the intestacy rules. If the property was held as joint tenants then it would pass to the remaining surviving joint owners, regardless even of any direction made in his Will. Therefore if he has left a valid Will stating who should inherit his interest in the property then that person will inherit it. If he has left a valid Will without mention of the property then it would form part of the residuary estate and pass to whoever the Will directed should inherit the residuary estate. If he has left no Will then it would form part of his estate and pass under the intestacy rules. I can advise further on the intestacy rules if this is applicable. Please remember to RATE my answer OK SERVICE, GOOD SERVICE OR EXCELLENT SERVICE or above if you are satisfied that you have received the correct legal advice (even if it is not the answer you wanted to hear), otherwise I do not receive any credit for answering your question.
