Good evening, thank you for your question, I am sorry to hear of your situation. If your sister is an executor she has no right to withhold any money from a beneficiary for whatever reason, unless the Will clearly states something such as money owed to be deducted. Tell her you will need to seek legal advice of which she will be responsible for the costs.

Kind regards
