My grandmothers home was in her 2 sons names. One son has passed away. Does the property go to the sole living heir or are the deceased sons children now part heir?
1 Answer from Attorneys
The children of the deceased son will inherit an equal share of their father's estate under the law of intestate succession in Mississippi or whatever their father provides in his Last Will and Testament. They will not inherit any interest in the property if their father was a joint tenant with his surviving brother or if their grandmother had will designating someone else as a legatee for the property and the brother's only held the property as fiduciaries for their mother.
