Gt. Grandmother may have left her estate to Grandchildren or other family members. I hope OP comes back as I’m interested to see how it pans out.
I've read the OP again and quoted from it above. So either:
1. House was left to others in Gt. Grandmother's will.
2. Gt. Grandmother died Intestate and nobody administered estate at the time. In which case Grandfather would have been entitled to a share, but didn't receive anything as estate wasn't distributed.
And I would have assumed that the LA would chase any potential way to pay some bills if there was a sniff of a possibility that it would work. So many times they will chase relatives to pay bills for which the relatives are not responsible on the off chance someone will bung them some of the money being requested.
Another reason why it would be good to know what the exact situation was with inheriting the house.
