Sale of business in London in 1939

Not sure if I'm in the right message board, but here goes! My grandfather, Howard George Dixon, was a Master Tailor and owned the business of Kerslake and Dixon, located at 12 Hanover street, London. After his death, my grandmother sold the business (and/or building?). There is some sort of family controversy that she was ripped off - bought by someone far below market value, then the purchaser resold the property for a tidy profit. My question is how to go about finding out who bought the property in 1939 (and later) and for how much. In the probate record, there is a lawyer listed as well as my grandmother. Does that mean he was a beneficiary also? How would I try to find a link between the lawyer and my grandfather's brother-in-law, who happened to be a property evaluator? Thanks so much!
