    If the owner dies then their estate is usually probated in court and the ownership is now distributed according to the will and it serves as “Proof of ownership” If the owner without a will, or without having their estate probated then the laws of intestate (i.e. "Without a will") succession will be applied. In general, the intestacy laws dictate that the closest relatives of the deceased will get the property owned.
