As I pointed out in my question we know that the house was sold, and we did get the information from land registry. Land registry only showed who bought the property and does not show the vendor's name. It is possible that the house has been onsold more than once. It is possible that my sister has changed her name which makes tracing her difficult especially as we live in Australia. Your assumption that my sister had no right to invest the proceeds in a new property is correct. The question I asked was what steps can be taken in the event that a misappropriation of monies has occurred I presume solicitors would have been involved in the legalities of any sale.
