How to Get Parent’s House in My Name When There Was No Will

When you die without a will, your property will pass under state intestacy laws. These laws are used to divide and distribute your estate according to your relationships with your spouse, children, and other relatives.


You should always update your will if there is a major change in your life. Having a will can ensure that your assets go to the people you want and the charities you support. However, the process can be confusing for your executor and beneficiaries. If you’re looking for an attorney, consider asking friends or a local bar association for referrals.

Authority to handle assets

If your parents do not have a will, you will have to get the authority to handle their assets. Fortunately, you can avoid family arguments by selecting someone to take charge of your parent’s affairs. Whether you choose a spouse, a friend, or a relative, it’s important to make sure that they are a trustworthy and competent individual.

Personal representative

In addition to selecting an administrator, you will need to have a personal representative. A personal representative is a fiduciary who is in charge of paying off debts and handling the distribution of your estate. He or she must adhere to a high standard of care. Your personal representative should be named in your will.


To prove that your will is valid, you should submit a sworn statement of witnesses. Alternatively, you can provide other proof that is admissible in court. This is especially important if you are disinheriting children or if you are modifying a will.
