Grandfather died intestate in 1966, but the estate was never finished. What am I going to do?
My Grandfather died in 1966, he had five children. My Uncle was appointed an administrator by the court of law. When he wanted to divide the property (basically only the family home) he was going to buy each one if his siblings had a share of the property. His four siblings did not want any claims and refused him any money. Since he lived there all his life, never married, took care of both parents when they were dying of cancer, they all thought the home should belong to him, so he never finished the exam.
(Note: I have the initial court documents indicating that he was designated an administrator)
15 years ago, when my uncle could no longer live alone, his brother (my father) moved in and cared for him until my uncle died a few years later. My father continued to remain in the house until he died in June 2020. He was the last of his brothers to pass away.
Also, my Uncle, who had been told that the house was his (but never had the deed changed formally), had a Will leaving it (the house) to me.
If all my first cousins have decided to sign and notarized affidavits claiming that they have no claims and that the property should come to me, how can I proceed?
