You can turn the power back on in your own name. The property belongs to whomever it is willed to, or will be split among the heirs if there is no will. I do not see a basis for suing her.

You MAY have homestead rights. This is certainly not an area of the law I focus my practice on. Perhaps you could find help through legal aide.

Good Luck!
