She has a right to live in the home since her name is on the deed. She is responsible for the insurance, taxes, etc. She should be able to sell the home but the loan on the house (if there is one) will have to be taken care of as the bank holds a lien on the property. I would suggest she talk to a real estate broker.

Do you think she will need a lawyer?

Considering the situation, she should speak with a lawyer regarding what she can and can't do.

Ditto on this cuz if they have the keys but she is on the deed she may need a police escort to change the locks or something if these people get crazy and she needs to clarify what she rightfully owns.

 It wouldn't hurt to have a consult with a lawyer. I wouldn't jump to a legal battle if she doesn't have to though. It would get costly.

First, I would talk to a broker. See what they say. See if there are any liens on the house other then the bank if there is a mortgage. Then if everything is clear she can start the process of selling the house. If the family then starts some kind of action, I would hire an attorney.

I agree.  She needs the death certificate and should def talk to an attorney about how to transfer the loan to her name, etc.

Agreed!! Speak to a lawer. Every state, city and county is different when it comes to real estate laws. What goes in one city could be completely different in the neighboring city. It's confusing and constantly changing.
