I am just reading this now
You need to see a competant lawyer and get the lawyer to lodge a caveat over the property to stop the sale and protect your interest in the property. This will stop any sale and she will have to then deal with the issue of your share in the property. Then it will be necessary to start a court case to sue for the breach of the contract over the property and the resulting damages and losses. You will be eligible for legal aid and I would like to refer you to a legal aid lawyer-can I ask what city you are in?
I see several issues here including the problem that when you signed the property agreement you all used the same lawyer, which has created conflicts of interest, and the way the teanancy Tribunal has dealt with this. Who was the lawyer who has retired?
Do you want a referral to a new lawyer-there is a good legal aid firm called Thomas Dewar who have many experienced legal aid lawyers and may be able to help. Their website is here-http://www.tdsl.co.nz/
