What are a grandchild's inheritance rights if a grandparent dies without a Will?

Question Details:

My aunt lives in the property but put the house up for sale because she can't afford to maintain the property. There was no Will and my understanding was when my father passed (over 20 years ago) that I was entitled to his portion of the house upon the death of my grandmother. We were told then that if my grandmother passed that my father and aunt would have 50/50 split of ownership and when my father passed we were told I inherited his 50% ownership rights. My aunt just took a contract on the property and is planning on keeping all the proceeds of the sale. I need to know if I have any rights to the proceeds.
