I have located a vacant house on my street, I did some research and found that the owner has died, (2 years ago), I called the court, and verified no probate has been filed in Los Angeles county (house is in LA County).
I would like to be able to buy this house.
Can I, being non-related, file for probate? if so, then what happens if no heirs make themselves known?
If I do find an heir, can they sign an agreement to sell me the house, IF they are deemed the heir, will that stand up in court?
If I file, will i need to come up with any money upfront, or will an attorney work on contigency, and get paid, when assets are distributed, and house is sold.
