The term "estate" with respect to a person's Will, trust or intestate proceeding means the assets or liabilities belonging to the decedent that have to be distributed to the designated beneficiaries under the Will, trust or through intestate succession.
Since you are the sole heir of this "estate" such means you are entitled to the net assets after all creditors are paid and there is a court order allowing such.
