In the state of Virginia if a house that was left to someone

This answer was rated:

In the state of Virginia if a house that was left to someone in a will had to be sold to pay for the nursing home of the person that owned the house, and the owner died before all of the money was used, does the original beneficiary get the remainder of the money?
Thank you for allowing me to assist you. If there is a delay in my reply, I am helping others but WILL reply to you asap. Thanks for your patience.

When the house was sold, where was the money deposited?

I have to find out. I do know that her nephew is the Power Of Attorney and the court has appointed a lawyer who has to be advised of everything.

ok, thanks. If the house was sold before the person died then the proceeds would not go to the person named in the will to receive the house. Where ever the proceeds of the house went (an account I assume) whoever the beneficiary of that account is, would receive the proceeds that remain from the sale of the house unless the will specifically allowed for this scenario. I hope this helps clarify.
