Real Estate

My father and his sister jointly owned a cottage but the executor says it isn’t in the will and we won’t inherit his half. How is this possible?

If the property was held in joint tenancy ownership, also called ‘joint with right of survivorship’, then his half effectively disappeared on death and his sister became the sole owner. Had she predeceased him, he would have become the sole owner. It may be that they inherited the property and this arrangement was made to avoid dividing the property among multiple families.
