If the owner of your home dies

This section looks at your rights if you and/or someone you live with owns your home and they die. This will depend on various different things including your relationship to the person, whether you own a share of the home, and whether or not they have left a Will. This situation can be complicated, and you'll probably need a solicitor to tell you where you stand.
