This is a unique situation. Looks like you have a free ride as you do not have to pay rent. You want to take it one step further and take over the house altogether. You have to have legal grounds to take over this house. You have done some research to find out whether there is a lien on a house. What is supposed to happen here is this house should be eventually escheated to the State of Virginia as unclaimed property.
One thing I do not understand is why there is no lien on the house. How about real estate taxes? I doubt that the owner pre-paid them for many years ahead as no one does it.

I'd call the agent and try to re-establish communication with the seller. In particular because the deal fell through, it would probably do more harm than good for you to try and contact the seller directly. If you don't remember who the Realtor was, then find your own Realtor and ask them to do some homework for you.
They should be able to get it put together for you.
Hope that's helpful!
