My question involves estate proceedings in the state of: CT
My grandfather owned property in CT at the time of his death, and he gave this property to his 5 children, who live in FL. There are long term leases on this property, and one of the children holds sub-leases (also assigned by my grandfather), so the property is not being sold. Instead, the siblings receive rent. As the siblings became deceased, the income from the estate has either passed on to their children, or to their spouse and then their children (thus ultimately keeping it in bloodlines).
My question is this- if one of the siblings has 2 biological children, but also has a spouse with whom he has no biological children, does the property (and income) from my grandfather's estate pass on to the siblings' spouse, and after her death, it then goes to his biological children, so that it remains in blood lines?
