I own 25% of a house I am not currently living in, my late dad's gf is.
does anyone know my rights ? I really want to either sell or get her to buy me out.

If you can't agree with her how you sell your interest (to her or you both sell up) you can apply to court for an order for sale. See if you can agree with her first, and if you can't you'll need to seek legal advice. If you have to apply to court for an order for sale the court normally would order she has to pay your costs.

I wonder if his will includes triggers that will force the sale of the house. Sometimes, unmarried couples have a legal document that the surviving partner can live in that house until they move out or remarry, at which time they will have to sell the house or buy out the other surviving heirs' share.

If she was finically dependnent on him and he left nothing to her in his will then she is a classic case of a person with a claim under the inheritance family and dependents act 975 - you may not get her out - all depends on the facts
