Hello! My name is Debra (formerly known as Legal Ease). Thank you for your question. I'm reviewing it now, and will post back again shortly.
I am sorry to hear of this difficult situation.
When your grandfather's land was sold after he death did your father get payments from the rights?
Yes for sure the rights get passed down unless your father sold them.
So the rights, as all other assets form part of your father's estate and should have been passed down with all other assets to whomever was inheriting, likely your mother.
And so then they would form part of your mother's estate when she died.
So if your father's Will was not probated then it may have to be in the rights were in his name alone. Then they would pass to your mother's estate and her Will would then also have to be probated.
Does that clarify the law?
