So sorry to hear of this dilemma. If my answer is not clear to you, please ask me for clarification by using the reply button.

Yes -- you can file a civil court action for civil theft. If you prevail the court may issue a judgment for the monies owed as well as punitive damages due to the intentional nature of her actions

Is there a date when it's too late? He had until he was 62 to claim the property and move in. He's only going on 59 as of the 13th of this month.

It does not appear too late. I encourage you to retain local counsel now to file your action
