If a decedent leaves no will, he dies intestate, and an administrator or all the heirs must then convey the property. Simply because an offspring has been living in the property for several years does not give him the authority to convey the estate of the deceased. The title company may accept an affidavit of heirship for a simple estate instead of going through the expense and time of an actual proceeding, but if there are missing or non-cooperative heirs, a formal administration proceeding will be required.
