I have a problem. My parents did not leave a will. My three brothers, sister and myself were left some property and we would like to sell it but we do not know how to prceed. We were told that we need a document of hiership or something. Do we need to go through probate? What is that anyway? What is next? What is a document of heirship? Any suggestions about how to proceed would be greatly welcomed. There is one more thing, it's been a few years, would time pose a problem? Can we do these things ourselves or do we need a lawyer?
Hope you can answer my posers. Is everything as complicated as I feel?
