Thank you for your patience. The answer is going to depend on what the parents had in the will. If there was a will, then you're going to have to follow the terms of the will. If there was no will, then the rules of UT's intestacy law is going to take over. Intestacy only means that someone died without a will. If a person dies and they have no spouse, then their children will get their inheritance. It doesn't matter if a child purchased the family home. If there is $100,000 left to be split, all four siblings are going to split the inheritance equally.
