His sister hairdresser Melanie Panayiotou, 55, moved into his London house to help make funeral arrangements and it has now been reported that the property has been left to her. She adores the Highgate house, one of the first he bought.
Family members, who have endured an agonizing wait to pay their final respects to the singer, are also understood to be considering the possibility of holding a service either on or close to Mother's Day on March 26.
It is thought that George's funeral will take place later this month, and although exact details have been kept private a source has revealed that the star will be buried next to his beloved mother, Lesley.
Speaking to The Sun On Sunday, he said: 'There are already fans lining up outside Highgate Cemetery, and much as he loved his fans, his family don't want his funeral to turn into a circus.
George would always make a big deal out of Mother's Day.
"The cemetery has a very special place in his heart".
Michael was found dead at the age of 53 at his home in Oxfordshire, England, on Christmas Day a year ago.
Fans have been waiting months for the funeral, which will reportedly see Geri Horner give a reading.
Last week a coroner who ruled that George died of natural causes and had a dilated cardiomyopathy with myocarditis - a disease of the heart muscle which affects how blood is able to pump around the body - a fatty liver.
The certificate used his birth name, Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou, but referred to the star being otherwise known as George Michael.
However, the switchboard Highgate Ceremony now plays a recorded telephone message saying: "If you're phoning about George Michael, I'm sorry we haven't got any information for you". What I like, real friends tell you how it is.
The singer's partner Fadi Fawaz claimed last week he knew nothing about the funeral as everything was "being kept quiet".
