Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Did the deceased not leave a Will dealing with his share of the property?
It i snot a matter of preventing a sale - unless one of the children lives there.
It means that when the property is sold only half of the equity is at risk from Care Costs - the other half goes to the two children.
There is no need for any further wording - it has already been accomplished.
Please ask if you need further details
I would have expected the Will to leave the deceased's entire share of the house to the children - is this not the case?
You are correct - there is no need for a separate deed to be drawn up
The executor(s) can be registered as joint owners with the Widow, as they will hold it until the death of the widow at which point that half share will revert to the two sons.
