Unfortunately, the loss of a loved one is something that we all experience in our lifetime.  Many times, family members are left figuring out what to do with the deceased family member's belongings.   One of the biggest challenges is what to do  with their home.   Selling a home that is not yours can be extremely overwhelming.  Whether it's sorting belongings, dealing with legal matters, reviewing expenses or other tasks that come with taking on a new home, ALL of these tasks take time.  Majority of people do not have that extra time.  

 That is the time that is needed to list a succession property, oversee the showing of the property, and the time for taking calls from curious passerby's .   Contacting a locally licensed realtor is highly recommended when dealing with selling your family member's precious home.  As a licensed realtor myself,  my job is to focus my time on selling homes and providing a top notch service to my clients.

Sucession in Louisiana

The probate of a will, known as succession in Louisiana, allows property to be transferred to the heirs/new owners. This is done via a Judgement of Possession, which transfers title from the deceased to the heirs. Unless there is a power of attorney given, every person listed as an owner on the Judgment of Possession must sign the listing agreement and disclosures.

What Happens to Property when Someone Dies Without a Will?

To determine how your estate is distributed if you die without a will in Louisiana you must determine two things. First, you must know if the property is community property or separate property. Next, you must know what relationship the survivors are to the deceased.  **Their are many details in  transfer of property, it is recommended to speak with a licensed professional specializing in real estate law before listing a home for sale.**
