What steps should I take in selling the mobile home that my deceased boyfriend and I owned together?

Question Details:

My boyfriend recently passed away and the mobile home we lived it has both our names in the title. There is no Will, no Trust, no survivorship and no quitclaim deed. My boyfriend and I were together for 8 years and he was separated from his wife for 10 years. Now the title to the mobile home has both my name and my boyfriend's name on it as joint owners. Now all I need to know is what are the steps I need to take to sell the home. Do I need to get a copy of the death certificate or some other papers. I'm at a loss as to how to go about selling. Do I need to get his wife involved?
