Can real estate owned by someone who has died without heirs be purchased?

The State Treasury will not sell real estate inherited by the government, with the exception of situations where real estate must be sold to cover any debt of the estate. Nevertheless, not all real estate remains in the possession of the government. The State Treasury decides on who the property is ultimately transferred to no earlier than one year after the testator has died. If the real estate is assigned to the municipality, for example, the municipality may decide to sell it.
