Hi All

 

I am looking for some independent advice, before we get too involved with solicitors.

 

A distant family member has died intestate age 30. He was living with his unmarried partner and mother of his 6 month old child.

 

The only asset is a house valued at c £120k. It is my understanding that this will follow the intestacy rules, with the house ending up in this statutory trust until the child is 18.

Who appoints trustees?

 

What happens next. The mother now will be on benefits.

 

Does the trust charge the mother rent, or should she live rent free whilst looking after the child.

 

How would this effect housing benefit? Would it even be due.

 

Any advice welcomed

 

thanks

Cohabiting partners can make a claim under The Inheritance (Provision for Family and Dependants) Act 1975. This legislation allows someone to challenge the distribution of an estate if they feel they haven’t been adequately provided for under the Will or intestacy. ?
