Thanks for your enquiry.
You do need to establish if your Mother's name is ***** ***** Deeds. If her name is ***** ***** the Deeds, and was not at the time of her passing, then legally she has nothing to leave to the 4 of you as she did not legally own the property or any share in it.
The only exception to this would be
if your other sister had entered into a Deed of Trust with your Mother stating that she "holds 34% of the value of the property or a set amount upon trust for your Mother". In such circumstances, this would mean that the respective share in the property now forms part of your Mother's Estate and as such, should be divided in accordance with your Mother's Will.
