A: If his parents owned the property together, it would have passed to the survivor after the first to die. An estate would have to be opened for the second parent to die so that the property could then be distributed. If your husband had siblings who were living at the time of the passing of the second parent, this gets rather complicated. Further, there are important facts missing in your question. You would be best advised to consult with an estate attorney to sort this out.
