My son died without will and one child age 4 and never married. I gifted him a house that he lived in. I had to sign all papers in hospital as next of kin. Who gets the house?

If your son died without a will and the house was titled in his name alone, then his child would be his only beneficiary and would inherit all of his assets. Since the child is a minor, a guardianship would need to be opened for him in probate court, an estate opened for your son. The court would oversee the distribution of your son's probate estate and all probate assets would be transferred to the guardianship.
