Generally, unfortunately, if the ownership of the house owned by the deceased parent was not transferred to the child / heir, while the parent was alive, then the house would be placed in the deceased parent's estate and the estate would have to go through probate, before any estate assets can be distributed to any heir(s).
I wish you the best of luck!
