Mother passed away

For anyone who is bereaved or no longer providing care.
Yes, you are joint new owners. The will executors must apply for probate and tell the Land Registry. My mum tried to avoid doing this and left me with a mess to sort out. I know what I'm talking about!
I'm sure you do. Ii was not arguing or even questioning just explaining further

Sorry, that came across the wrong way. I was reflecting what a mess it was. When I was newly widowed, newly disabled, left with a business to run and a son with learning difficulties having endless problems with his carers, this was absolutely the last thing I needed. My two brothers were, as always "too busy" to help!
Sorry to hear your brothers were always 'too busy'

I still can't believe it but, after years of suffering with MND, my mother passed away on Thursday. At least she is at peace now. Thanks to everyone for all your advice and support whenever I posted a query. Best wishes to everyone - take care - stay safe.
Another former MND carer here, too. My Gran passed from this in February of this year. It's definitely something you can't quite believe has actually happened, after such a long time of watching them go through the illness.

I just wanted to reach out to say that you're not alone- I hope you will be able to use this lockdown time as time to get some much-needed rest.
I'm sorry to hear that your mother has passed away and condolences on your loss. My brother and I have just been through this after our Aunt died in January. We had Power of Attorney but as bowlingbun said, that lapses as soon as the person dies so is no longer relevant.

As our Aunt's bank account balance was under 50k, her bank (Santander) was happy to release those funds without a grant of probate, so we were able to use those funds to pay for the funeral (even if you do need to wait for probate, banks will pay the funeral director's bill from the deceased's account). She owned a house and we did have to apply for probate in order to be able to have ownership transferred to us to sell it. We didn't use a solicitor to do that but in your case if the house is to be held in trust for you to live in for the rest of your life, that would be advisable. Obtaining probate only took 4 weeks, even in the current corona virus crisis.

So sorry to hear this.

Even when we know its going to happen soon..its still a terrible shock, that nothing can prepare you for.
I have managed to do some resting. Thanks

Usually I'd suggest that this is time for a holiday, not really an option at the moment, but I'm glad you have managed to get some rest. You have so much rest to catch up on, but feel really proud of what you did.
Sorry to hear about your Mum, Thisguy. As you say she is now at peace. Take care of yourself as best you can.
