    Deceased spouse's claim on deceased husband's shares

    Deceased spouse's claim on deceased husband's shares 9th Feb 13 at 2:57 PM
    I am dealing with an aunt's probate as I am her executor.

    Her husband died seven years before she did and I have discovered in her paperwork that there are shares still in her dead husband's name.
    It is apparent that she had it in mind to transfer these in to her name as there are half completed application forms, but unfortunately they were never sent off.

    I have contacted the share company who have requested sight of the grant of representation, which I don't have. The probate office say that there was never an application for probate made when her husband died.

    Legally, is the estate of a deceased entitled to make claim on what would have been her entitlement whilst she was alive?
