I'm Heather. I've been an attorney for fifteen years, and I'd like to assist you for informational purposes. Your sister could plausibly make a claim, but this doesn't mean that she'd be successful. Arguably, her property was abandoned, and worthless (appliances over ten years old). If she made a claim, you could counter claim for unjust enrichment, because she stored the property for free to the estate's detriment. I think that if she makes a claim, it will be so weak that she won't get very far. Best of luck with your sale!
