No. It’s important to note that when property transfers from the deceased to his or her heir, everything else involved with that property becomes the heir’s responsibility, too. For example, if your grandfather leaves you his lake house, he’s also leaving you any obligations or debts related to it, such as its utility bills, yet-to-be-discovered mold or leaky roof. Because the title transfers without warranty, you’re also on the hook for any future claims made against it. For these reasons, as well as others, an heir may renounce his or her claim to an inheritance.
