Q. My granddad’s property is still in his name but he and my dad have died. What is needed to transfer property to heirs?
A: You all can open what is called an ancillary succession here in Louisiana, if the Executor has only been appointed in Florida. How the land will be transferred depends upon how the land was titled, if there was a Will or not, and who the intestate heirs are. If the ancillary succession has been opened in Louisiana, you all may need counsel of your own to protect your interests in the succession. Best of luck.
Q. Land in grandma name. Dad only living child. His home on property also. Wants me to inherit property. Next step?
A: Your father, as an heir, needs to open succession. If there is no Will, and your father is the only child, then, he may inherit. However, if there were other children that predeceased, then, their children may also have a right to inherit. You need to further discuss these specific circumstances with a counselor well versed in probate. Good luck.
Q. Can I include in my last will and testament, that the property being bequeath not be sold
A: The only way to "control from the grave" and proscribe a beneficiary from selling/doing as they wish with a bequest, is via sanctioned restrictions: either divide ownership among usufruct and naked ownership, or it has to be put in a Trust. Best of luck.
