Ejectment Action Required Proof of Title, but not Joinder of Heirs

In an ejectment action brought by the administrator of an estate, the heirs of the decedent were not indispensible parties even though title to the property had passed to the heirs at the death of the decedent under 20 Pa.C.S. § 301(b), but the decree of the Orphans’ Court was vacated and remanded because the administrator had failed to introduce any proof that the decedent had owned the property at death. In re: Estate of Vernell Smith, 378 EDA 2022 (Super. 3/24/2023) (non-precedential).
