Owner Rights

My step dad passed away without ever putting my mothers name on the deed to the house. 7 months before his passing he took out a home equity loan and told the bank my mom was deceased. He did this to hide the debt he incurred. Now she wants to move and sell the house. Does she have to pay the remainder of the loan to the bank? Can she receive any money from the sale of the house? We were told that she is entitled to half, now a lawyer tells us she has no rights to any money. Who's right?
