For property ownership, with real property, there are a couple of issues.

#1; how title to the property is held; because that can determine who is next in line to inherit (ie survivorship deeds)

2; the owner's will, or if no will, the laws of intestate succession ie next of kin.

How was the property titled? and were both the father and stepmother on title?
