Hi and welcome to JA. Ray here to help you today.Please bear with me a few moments while I review your question, conduct and prepare your response.
You would need to make application for probate in the parish he resided.The person appointed personal representative would do a Judgment of Possession to herself or the legal heirs as part of probate.She cannot transfer this without probate and a lawyer locally to file application.As part of probate she has to pay creditor claims, file an inventory and then deed it to the heirs.
Louisiana law uses the word succession to refer to the probate process. A Louisiana succession is a court process for changing title to assets from a deceased person to his or her heirs or beneficiaries.'
The purpose of succession is to give clear or marketable title to the deceased person’s assets. After the succession process is complete, the individuals or organizations that end up with the assets can sell them, take out loans against them, and otherwise freely deal with the assets.
Successions are often required to give assurance to third parties (such as financial institutions or buyers). As part of the succession, the court will issue a Judgment of Possession that transfers title to the decedent’s assets.
