A: If the property has already been distributed from an estate of the deceased owner to an heir of the estate, then that heir is now the owner and can sell it without any restrictions. However, if the property is still titled in the name of the deceased, then an estate has to be opened and administered prior to the property being distributed to the heir or heirs.
