  • Wifes' entitlement without a Will?

    I jointly own a mobile home with my Mother. I am also married but my Wifes' name is not on the ownership title. If I were to pass away before my Mother, without a Will in place, would my wife be entitled to my share of the mobile home?
    I live in British Columbia, Canada.

    That would depend on how the trailer is titled and what your will says regarding it.
    Due to a recent promotion, I should now be referred to as Major Obvious.

    I would not be trying to provide information and knowledge if I did not sympathize.

    Some days it is just not worth chewing through the restraints to face life.

      I don't have a will. The trailer is joint ownership between myself and my Mother, but my wife and I live in it and have lived in it since it was purchased. My Mother has never lived in it.

        Does the title convey survivorship? If not, your interest in the home will transfer according to intestate probate laws for your area.

          I think that's his original question.

            If you die without a will, the court will appoint an administrator. The court makes this appointment upon the application of somebody qualified to act in this capacity. Usually the person appointed as the administrator is a member of your family, or if you have none, a close friend or even a creditor. However, this may not be the person you would have chosen. The administrator's job is to distribute your property and assets among those who are entitled to it.

              The Estate Administration Act says dying intestate, with a spouse and no children or great-grandchildren or other issue, their estate goes to the spouse.

                That depends upon how the mobile home is titled: whether as tenants in common or joint tenants.
                Exactly how is ownership shown on the title?

                  I already mentioned that. Thanks for reminding it as a precursor.

                    There is still no answer. That question needs to be answered, first.
