Chapter 5305 - DOWER
Section 5305.05 - Death of plaintiff before assignment.

Ohio Rev Code § 5305.05 (2015) What's This?

When a plaintiff in an action to assign dower dies before the assignment, or before entry of the final judgment, the action may be revived in the name of the executor or administrator. The court of common pleas shall determine, if not before decided, whether the plaintiff was entitled to dower in such action. If the plaintiff was so entitled, the court shall adjudge in favor of such executor or administrator a sum equal to one third of the rental value of the real estate in which the plaintiff was entitled to dower, from the filing of the petition until death, after deducting one third of the necessary expenses. The sum so adjudged in favor of such executor or administrator is a lien upon such real estate, and its payment may be enforced by sale as upon execution.
