A: You should consult an attorney and provide the relevant documents and wills for the two estates. The house will probably still pass to your mom's estate and then would pass to her two heirs equally unless there are wills or other documents that would change this result.

A: I am so sorry for your loss.

I am not certain I understand your question. I am not certain if the property is currently in your mother's name, or in the name of someone else.

Can you explain the situation to me of how this house is titled today? Then I may be able to answer your question.

Thanks so much.
