I am sorry to hear this; how was title to the house held? Also did the decedent have a will/trust?
I am sorry to hear this; unless the property was held in joint tenancy with right of survivorship, then the decedent's portion of the property would need to be probated. If the person did not have a will or trust. the property would pass via the laws of intestate succession. This means that person's property passes to the next of kin but that it must be probated.
This explains the probate process here
