Osseo, MN asked in Probate for Minnesota

Q: Tenancy in Common - Probate

If two owners had a tenancy in common deed, and one owner passed away (now both have passed). What document would be filed to show the passing of her portion of the properties to the next-of-kin? My aunt died (has husband and two kids), she had tenancy in common in three properties. My cousin claims that she was already granted her moms 50% by a judge (not sure why it wouldn’t go to her husband). Anyway, just trying to see if there would be a deed of some sort that would show this (as the last deeds I could find show my grandma and aunt still listed). Also, my aunt died seven years ago - so probate has finished for her estate and when I search the MN court record database there are probate records for her.

A: Apparently your aunt's estate was never probated or the title would have been updated by now. Click on "Find A Lawyer" above and look for a probate attorney in your area.
