Q&A - Can step-mother sell house if deceased father left his half of it to me?

Q: My father died nine years ago. In his Will he left his half of the house he bought with my step-mother to me.

Surely, if my father left half the house to me, my step-mother cannot sell it and use all the proceeds to buy another home for herself?

Q&A - Tonsil op impaired my speech and caused me to lose my job can I claim compensation?

Q&A - Can my dead partner’s estranged wife evict me from the home we shared?

Q: My partner died suddenly in August this year from a heart attack, aged 42. We had been together for almost three years but couldn’t marry because his wife wouldn’t agree to a divorce, even though she had left him and gone to work abroad a few months before I met him. After I moved in he bought his wife out of the house and I gave birth to our lovely little boy. He was totally committed to our relationship and said he would always look after us. However, after he died I discovered there was no Will and now his wife’s solicitor has written giving me notice to vacate the house. Surely my son and I have some rights to his estate?
