SEV but no property trust

Question if a client has a non mutual Severance, then dies without a property trust to accept their share, with the sole beneficiary as their son. What happens to the 50% ? Also as the share is not in a trust whT happens with probate?

You’re saying, if a client owns a property together with another person as tenants in common, then the client dies, what happens to his/her share in the property? The answer is that the beneficiary under his Will (his son, you say) inherits his share of the property.

Hi Julian, As I thought. I just have a very difficult client’s son who is questioning, everything even down to “was the Will Legal”, especially after I had to take him to court to claim outstanding invoices. I just can’t get rid of him :roll_eyes:
