NQ Did Dad use solicitor to do his will? They may have copy. Also if no will it should be divided equally to all next of kin. Was he married when he passed?

Tax Adviser. In the absence of a will the 4 children will share the estate equally. Your sister has no more right to move in there than any of her siblings. If not done so already someone will have to apply for letters of administration, in order administer the estate. https:// www.gov.uk/ applying-for-pro bate/ if-theres-not-a- will

If there is no will then your fathers estate will go through probate (if its valued over ab certain amount) and because theres 4 children you all get an equal share,,, the house doesnt belong to your sister and shes not allowed to give anything away until its all be valued,,

NQ You say that you know he had a Will. How do you know that? Be specific. If he did have a Will, then your sister has intermeddled in both the execution and distribution of the estate
