A: The house is covered and they are part owners of the house, if it were to be destroyed by say a fire they would be entitled to recovery under the policy. Whether they have a "legal right to it" or a right to inspect it is not entirely clear if you don't have an agreement with them. Email me privately if you'd like to discuss it further, I assume there's a reason why you don't want to share it with them and that is quizzical to me.
