111. This happens a lot of times to people.
As an RN I have seen this happen over and over. Usually it is
the families who walk in and take everything and throw the
other partner out.  My partner Marcia died and her parents
whom she hadn't seen or talked to in at least 10 years walked
in and were planning on taking everything in the house. Marcia
hadn't gotten around to set up legal paperwork for us and they
used this. I was so fortunate that they decided to not take
anything out of the house except some stupid stuff like unused
stacks of paper etc. They did take the house and ended up
selling it back to Fred who had sold it to Marcia. I was then
able to remain there for minimal rent for another 10 years. 
It was so hard...her Dad, who had molested her as a child,
even called a friend who was the beneficiary of a huge life
insurance policy that Marcia had and wanted her to pay for the
funeral. Of course when she called me and other friends we all
agreed that her parents could shell out the money.  I went to
get rings off Marcia before the funeral and her MOM had taken
them. The rings matched mine and one was of a naked woman. Her
Mom continued to wear them and refused to let me have them
when I called her lawyer.
