Reply To: a will in probate

But he only moved in after the great uncle died. Of course there would not have been any agreement between them. I’m also not sure why you say he could live in the property for free… Is your customer likely to be a beneficiary of the will? If so that would not give him any rights before the estate was settled.

I’m no expert on wills and probate, but I think the estate has to be managed as a seperate entity regardless of who is administering the will. So I’m pretty sure there can be an enforceable liability. You would still need to look into all the usual reg 9 issues.
