Aunt passed away in June last year. My uncle was the sole executor and beneficiary of my aunts will. They were not married.
They both jointly owned the house they lived in. After her death, the property was transferred to my uncle. Probate was granted and there was no IHT at all. My uncle has now passed away and I am the sole executor and one of the beneficiaries. I am trying to do a DoV on my aunts will.
My problem is, the house was jointly owned by both parties. After her death the house was transferred to my uncle.
Can I do a DoV to divert my aunt’s share directly to us?
Also, can I use the DoV to change the joint tenancy to tenancy in common?
