Q: I need to find information about heir property in Mississippi. Who should I talk to?
The property was owned by my grandparents, they are deceased and their children are deceased. Thirteen grand children are living. How can I find out who's name the property is in? Two of the grand children have information about the property and will not share the information with the others. How can we find out about the heir property. We would like to sell the property and split the proceeds.
A: Call a MS attorney in the County where the property lies. Hire him to search the title and then see who is presently receiving the tax notices. If it looks profitable, the lawyer will need to determine Heirship, and then record an Affidavit of Heirship. A Partition Action may be necessary.
