What is Calif. law re: real estate; death instestate of her sole heir. Now he has died intestate.
My husband's Grandmother died intestate. She had one sole heir, my husband's Father. He and his wife kept paying taxes on the property.Then he also died intestate. Now, my Mother-in-law wants to sell this property. According to what I've read of Ca. law; she has no right to sell it. My understanding is that my husband's Father was sole owner; and he had 4 children; one now deceased. To complicate matters even more, before my Husband's Grandmother verbally stated that when she passed away, the property was to go solely to my Husband; stating it was his by the fact that he was born on it. One of my Husband's brothers agrees that she said that; and she also told me that. Does that have any legal merit in court? Where do we go from here? My mother-in-law has moved to Tennessee; and thinks she can contact a realtor and sell the property. Her son back there agrees; because she has kept the taxes paid. We disagree; and it has caused a huge division in the family. Can you tell us our legal rights? Thank you for any help you may provide.
