Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If the house is still in grandmother's name, then you could potentially claim ownership of the house if you could maintain exclusive use and possession of the property for the statutorily prescribed period of time for "adverse possession". In VA, this would take 20 years under common law before you could file a "quiet title" action against the estate and claim legal possession.
