If a house is left to more than one person and one of the heirs lives at the house, can that person file a homestead exemption?

In the abstract, anything is possible. Would need to know what the requirements are for the homestead exemption, no? It's also unclear what the purpose of the question is. Ultimately, this is simply a real estate question vs. one of how someone acquired ownership in a property (inheritance). (We also cannot know whether this inheritance is complete; you say "left to" but we can't know precisely where the situation stands.)

I'll echo PG's advisory "warning" with a twist: (Many) legal issues are complicated. Explanations and comments here might not fully identify or explain the ramifications of your particular problem. I do not give legal advice as such (and such is impermissible here at any rate). Comments are based on personal knowledge and experience and legal info gleaned over a quarter century, and every state has differing laws on and avenues to address most topics.  If you need legal advice, you need to consult (and pay) a professional so that you may have someone to hold accountable.  Acting on personal and informational advice from a stranger on the internet is a bad idea -- at least not without your own thorough due dilience/research and confirmation as it applies to your situation.  :)
