  • The son can only inherit what his father leaves him in his Will. If the father wants his son to have monies; property or personal effects it will be in the Will. If the father and son have not been close and the father does not put him in the Will then the son will get nothing.
  • If there is no will, the estate will be distributed according to the laws of intestacy in the place of death. It may result in the son getting half the estate if he is a minor, particularly if the wife is not the mother of the son.

My mother jointly owns an inherited house with another family member can I inherit her half when she dies?

If your mother owns the property as joint tenants with the right of survivorship with that other person then she cannot leave her interest in the property to you. If that tenancy was not specifically recited in the will when she received her inheritance then she inherited as a tenant in common and can leave her half interest in the property to you by will. If she dies intestate her interest will pass to her heirs at law according to your state laws.

Husband and wife buy house with garndfather and mother -Grandfather dies- Does the interest in house breakdown in thirds eventhough grandma pays half of mortgage?

First, the language in the deed may determine how much Grandmother owns. Second, in some jurisdictions the operation of law may provide her with a half interest because married couples may be viewed as one "unit" so that each couple owns a half and the survivor of each "unit" would own that half interest. You should seek the advice of an attorney in your area.

Can A life estate be inherited?

A person who owns a life estate cannot leave it to heirs. The life estate expires when the life tenant dies. In another sense a person can inherit a life estate. For example, suppose William is married to his second wife, Sarah. William and Sarah live in the home that William shared with his first wife who died many years ago. It was the family home where he grew up and where he raised his own children. In his will William can leave his home to his children but reserve a life estate for Sarah so that she can continue to live in their home for the duration of her life. When William dies Sarah will inherit a life estate. When Sarah dies William's children will own the property free of her life estate.

If there are two names on a deed and one person dies who owns the house?

That depends on how the two held title. I will assume there was no will. If they owned the property as joint tenants with the right of survivorship or as tenants by the entirety (married couples only) then the other will become the sole owner when one dies. If they owned the property as tenants in common then the decedent's half share would pass to their heirs at law according to the state laws of intestacy.
