I see that you haven't made a payment for the question, but I'm going to assist you a little. If you want to ask a follow-up question, please make the required payment, even if it is R150 or R200.
Have you asked a lawyer to do a search at the Deeds Office to find out whose name the house is currently registered in?
Also, did your grandmother have a Will in which she left the house to your Mom?
