My father passed away in 2013. My mother passed in 2009, my brother in 2011. There is one granddaughter. I was listed as a signer on dad's bank accounts. dad did not make a will. Dad left 40% of is retirement funds to me, 40% to my brother (he never updated his beneficiary information) and 10% to his granddaughter. (Her mother is not my father's daughter). Dad has a house. I have continues to make payments and repairs on the home through the account dad and I shared. I am not on the deed, however. The house sat empty until March of 2016. I am renting it out currently. dad lived with me the last four years of his life and mentioned that I would be executor upon his death, but I have not found any documentation to that effect. There is no one to contest my taking ownership of the property. I have paid all of his creditors and alerted those that I know of about his death. I'm not sure what else I need to do and do want to proceed with getting his home in my name.
