    Not true. If he didn't leave it to anybody in a will then it's inherited under the laws of intestacy. If he had no spouse at the time of his death, his children inherit.

    However, the property would have to be probated for ownership to be transferred to his children.

    Until then it is owned by the estate.

    You can buy it or rent it from your grandfather's estate or from whoever owns it now.

    Somebody has to step up and get the estate properly probated or there is going to be big trouble along the way.

    I suggest that you avoid moving in until the ownership is resolved.
