Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
Should the prayer for the deceased by led by his heir or by the regular imaam (of the mosque)?

Praise be to Allaah.
The funeral prayer in the mosque should be led by the regular imaam.
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allah's Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
