Thought I was on the final stretch today as I went to hand over the deeds for an assent in title to me and to apply for first registry of the property. Imagine how I felt to be told that although I had gone through probate for my recent Mum's death I now have to do it all over again for my Dad who passed away in 2010. Apparently the house deeds are only in my fathers name and were never in my Mums so I need to go to probate again so I can finalise this. At the time I was told probate wasn't needed, I think it was assumed the deeds were in both their names hence it passed to Mum and their joint savings did not warrant probate to release funds to Mum. I think the solicitor was hoping I'd use their probate service but I said I would attempt to do it myself as I had just gone through it and found it OK. So off I go again, trouble is I will have to approach banks etc to get the details (which won't be free no doubt) and would I be able to use right move for a valuation of the house, possibly £150K so well under the £325K or thereabouts at that time.
