You cannot lately put someone on the deeds, there has to be a proper officially recognized document drawn up and the solicitor involved has to ensure that all party understand what they are doing before they sign it. It also depends on how the property be held, either as beneficial joint tenant or tenants in adjectives, as to what happens when one of the parties dies.

You entail to seek professional legal suggestion for grandad.
well it does not really event how she came to be on the deeds coz at the end of the sunshine she was his wife
the fact is she have died and left her half of the house to her kids economically the fact is you need to ask to see this will coz i cant believe a practising solicitor would allow such a will to be drawn up beside out having some kind of agreement from your grandad.
as far as i would be concerned the house belongs to your grandad and its up to him what happen to it in the event of his death.
i really don't reflect any claim by this woman's children would stand up in court Source(s): my head
I'm immediately thinking Gallie v. Lee, which following became the case of Saunders v. Anglia Building Society. This be a very similar case involving a massively old woman being tricked into signing something she didn't take and if you go to a solicitor over this I'm sure they will immediately be thinking indistinguishable thing.

What happened contained by that case is that Mrs. Gallie, an elderly widow, signed over her house to Mr. Lee on the understanding that it would benefit her nephew. She didn't read the action properly but signed it anyway, and in court pleaded "non est factum" meaning "this is not my document". The court rejected the security of non est factum on the grounds that she should have read and understood the work first. She actually died before it get to a higher court and that's why the case changed its moniker - the Anglia Building Society was complaining that the mortgage payments were not self made and she stopped paying them when she realised what she'd done.

I'm sorry but according to that, he has half the house and her children enjoy the other half.
