Protecting property interests

If you have an interest in a freehold or leasehold property – which belonged to or was lived in by a deceased person – then we can advise you whether you might be entitled to all, some or none of the proceeds of the sale. Your interest will be categorised into one of two areas, depending on your circumstances:

  • The legal estate – which relates to the name on the title deeds
  • The beneficial interest – which is the right to the sales proceeds

We can advise you on how you can acquire, or be entitled to, a beneficial interest – even if you do not own the legal estate. We can also provide guidance on how to protect a beneficial interest if you contributed to the purchase or improvement of the property – or if joint owners of the legal estate have contributed different amounts.
