Do deeds to property supercede wills? The property is in WV and the deed was drawn up there also. The only survivor on the deed is now deceased (from CA). Do the next of kin automatically inherit the property regardless of what the will states?? Also, the next of kin have been paying property taxes on the property for 14 years.The deed had it going from the grandmother(who is now deceased) to her two daughters. One daughter died. It then went to the surviving daughter who had no husband, children, no living parents or siblings. The next of kin would be her niece & nephew. The property was not mentioned at all in the will. But if the deed (which I assume is the same as a title) supercedes a will. Would it even matter if the property was mentioned or left to anyone in the will anyway since the deed would override that??? And if that is true, would the property go to the only living next of kin (niece & nephew) or would it become part of the estate??
