    Hello my gran has terminal cancer and has done a will. I am her power of attorney and she is leaving me her house. If I was to move in with her now so I can care for her when she needs it. Will I be able to remain in the house? My gran fears that I could end up homeless. Any idea how it works when you are left a property in a will?

    Hi AML,

    I am sorry to read of your Gran’s cancer. A will is a legally binding document (if completed correctly) that people write to explain what they want to happen to their assets and possessions when they die.  We have some information on wills, probate and inheritance that you can find here: https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/help/bereaved-family-friends/practical-legal/wills-probate-inheritance.

    To get specific information on your situation, I would suggest that you need to speak to a Solicitor, who will be able to answer all your questions.
