Is there a lease in place?
Do you have evidence of the rental payments that they made?
If there is no lease agreement then you will have to rely on the payments and if you are the executor of the estate or the owner of the properties under the will you can sue them for the rent they have not paid.
If they have claimed the rent and no paid they have committed fraud and this should be reported to the ATO
Just following things up and seeing if there is anything else I can assist you with?
