Thanks you for the reply. How can my Mother protect the property (in her will or some other way) for me to be able to inherit as per her will?
Does it matter if my Mothers partner is independently financially self sufficient if he makes a claim against the will?
Thank you very much for the advise. Regards Rob
Just another thought, would it make any difference if my Mother put the house in my name now and continued to live in as now with her partner for say the next 10 years?
I have been speaking to other legal people (I am in the process of buying a house and while this is going on have been in the company of legal folks) and they seem to think that for my Mothers partner to contest the will and claim to stay in the house he would have to show he has contributed to the home in some way (interms of paying for some repairs or an extention or something house related) otherwise the will will stand as Mother wants it. Would you agree with this?
Sorry for the long time since this reply but after many converstaions my Motrher has now agreed to go to a Solictor and get an agreement written up for her partner to sign. Is there any words or sentence that must be inb the letter to make sure it will do the job and not cause me a problem later?
