Coparceners

The word "coparcener" generally speaking, means joint heirs. Siblings, whose father dies without a will, may be referred to as "coparceners" of his real estate, meaning that they own it jointly. They each have a share, just not a specific part of the real estate. To have their part clearly marked typically requires court action, or at least complete agreement among the heirs.
