Hello everyone and thanks in advance for your advice. As in the title: Is it legal for a TR1 form to be registered after the death of the owner?
I had a relative that died on the 22nd and according to his new wife wanted to transfer 50% of his property to her which he owned outright. Because of the man and wife element, there were no solicitors and conveyancing, just her say so and a TR1. This was registered with Land registry on the 23rd.
He had left a Will giving her a life interest in the property and then 100% of the house was to go into a trust for his family from his first marriage.
So is it legal to register a transfer after a death?
How to challenge such a transfer?
