Hi - my name is ***** ***** I'll be glad to assist.
If your father was the only person on the title to the property at the time of his death, then the property is now held by his estate......which means his heirs at law would now own the property (unless he had a will).
If there is no will, then your spouse and the other parent (if living) and other siblings would own the property.
Thus, if your spouse is not the only heir of the deceased father, you'll have to get each person to quitclaim (via deed) their interest over to you. Then, you'll have to open his estate for probate and to transfer the property from his estate to your spouse.
Please let me know if you need anything further. Also, please take time to positively rate our conversation so I may receive credit for assisting. Thanks again!
