How can I sell a house that is not in my name, but it is in the name of my grandfather who is deceased?
1 Answer from Attorneys
If you're the legitimate heir to this property and your grandfather
died intestate (without a will), you need to file an Affidavit of
Heirship with the probate division of the circuit court in the locality
where the property is located and await the issuance of an order
from thist court which recognizes you now as the legitimate owner of the property at issue. One of the clerks of this probate court may then be willing'
to instruct you as to how this document should then be recorded in the
land records database of this court which should then allow you to legally sell it to a third party.
