    It'll probably go to the county for back taxes, and then be put on tax sale. But, they'll try to verify first whether or not there's ANY relatives left at all that may have an interest.

    Unfortunately when there is a death and there is no family to inhereit the estate the property usually goes to the State and in this particular case where your neighbor owes back taxes then it will definitely go to the state to where the house and property/land will be auctioned for taxes.The remaining monies? well your guess is just as good as mine...lol I have no idea where that goes.

    If he left a will, it will go to the person named first, most places give the heir a little time to make up the taxes. If not that, the county will take possession and put it up for auction to make up the taxes.

    If he truly has no family and never created a will, the property goes to the state, most likely. However, the liklihood of him truly having no family for purposes of inheritance is very remote.

    Scroll down on this link to the Table of Consanguinity - this is a list of your relatives from every angle. There are lotsa folks who have a claim to your property after you die!

    If he has no heirs, or hasn't left it to anyone in a will, the house will go up for sale by the state and whoever purchases the home makes it theirs.. and the state profits.

    If he did not leave it to anyone, it will go up for government auction.
