Hi 

I have a joint bond with my partner. He passed away on the 22 of March 2018. However our joint bond was registered on the 27th of March 2018, 5 days after he passed away. Which means I started to pay the first installment on a bond after he passed away until today. We were traditionally married but out marriage was not registered. Now his family is fighting for the his possession including the house in a joint bond. They manage to get a letter of executorship. 

What can I do in this instance as I don't want  to sell or loose the house. Over an above there is no equity in the house. Since my husband passes away while a full debt was owing, that warrant to devide a property to be devided into half. Because there was a full debt. Kindly advise.

Regards

Prudence
