Heirs and Legatees

Legal definitions can sometimes be difficult to pin down as they can change over time and can vary from state to state.

However, usually heirs of a deceased person are related to them by blood or legal adoption. The legatees of a deceased person are given property in that deceased person's will.

State statute in effect at the time the reference used should clarify if there is any ambiguity.
