We may need more information. If "Uncle" is the son of "Grandfather" and Uncle has no heirs, it goes back to Grandfather and down to any of Grandfather's other children. Depending on who is alive or deceased will depend on who gets what share. Please see an Estate Planning attorney with your family details for an actual determination of the beneficiaries.

Many wills have clauses which specifically distribute the assets of a deceased heir. If the gift was dependent on your uncle surviving your grandfather, your grandfather's will may have a residuary clause which provides for the disposition of assets which remain in the estate (including those undistributed because of a failed or lapsed devise). If the granting language to your uncle does not predicate the distribution upon him surviving then the house will probably pass to your uncle's heirs by the laws of intestacy. You should consult with an attorney about this to determine your rights.

Assuming that the will does not provide terms on how to proceed if uncle passes away, then the estate would pass to uncle's heirs at law. If he had no spouse or children, his heirs would likely be his siblings and/or parents.

This answer assumes the real property is in Nevada: In part the answer to your question depends upon whether you uncle survived your grandfather and whether he was required to survive him to take under the Will. Assuming that your uncle did survive your grandfather or that your uncle was not required to survive under the Will, then it would pass to your uncle's estate that would need to be probated and then to his heirs, your uncle's closest relatives. If your uncle was required to survive your grandfather and did not, then it would pass to your Grandfather's heirs named in his Will as contingent beneficiaries or if no other heirs are named then to his intestate heirs. It sounds like you should discuss the specific, including dates of death and provide a copy of the Will to an attorney for legal advice on your situation.

Generally speaking, if the benefiary of the house has passed away (and if the will does not specify who it goes to under those circumstances), then the house would go to whoever is next in line for your grandfather's estate. Again generally, this would be his spouse (if any), or his children (if no spouse), or the children of his children (if his child/children don't survive). I recommend you speak with a probate attorney to discuss the will and how the statutes will affect your particular situation.
