A: When your great grandfather died his estate was inherited by his 2 daughters and 3 sons. These five individuals owned the property to the ratio of 2:1. Each son owned 25 percent of the property, while 12.5 percent was owned by each daughter. The property was not sold so that means that none of his heirs had received any money in cash during their lifetime. Later on three sons and one daughter passed away, while one daughter remained. Now when the property is sold the surviving daughter will receive her share of 12.5 percent, while the surviving heirs of your great grandfather’s children who had passed on, i.e. the three sons and one daughter, will receive the shares of their respective parents. The heirs of your great grandfather’s children will be their wives, if still alive, and their sons and daughters who are alive.
