Hi crazy!

Welcome to forums!

If the heirs are not paying their taxes, then it is definitely a neglect of ownership.

My great-grandfather had left land as heirs property. What we understand is that we cannot do anything with the land. We live in South Carolina. Can heir property be broken, if so how?

Hi Ronay,

The land may be subdivided. In order to do so, you will have to contact your county's planning and development office for information regarding rules and regulations.

Hi Andrea!

Welcome to the forums!

Your father is also one of the heirs to that property. So, he will have his claim to the property. He can claim a higher share because he has paid for the taxes. However, it will depend upon his siblings as to how the property will be divided.

Feel free to ask if you've further queries.

Welcome joany,

The wife will be considered as one of the heir's to the deceased husband's property. If the husband wishes, he can draft a will and leave the whole property to the wife irrespective of his 4 children.
