A: That depends on a lot of different facts. Did your grandmother leave a Will? Is your father her only heir? I strongly recommend that you seek the advice of an experienced attorney.

A: You need to perform a title search to see who owns the real property. The Father may, or may not be the owner, and entitled to possession.
