X died in August 2014
X provided to their unmarried partner Y a right to occupy their property for life. This property then passes to X’s 3 children equally (1 of these children is also a child of Y).
Y passed away in August 2017 and their assets consist of £225,000 in cash plus the property that they had a right to occupy which is valued at £150,000.
Y’s estate passes to his only daughter, she is also the daughter of X.
Are we able to claim the Residence allowance on Y’s death and if so to what extent?
