Can a step granddaughter collect unclaimed property from an estate with no other living heirs?

Maybe, but not normally. Unless the step-child was adopted they are not a descendant of the deceased. However, if their parent received the estate through their spouse, they may have a claim. You need to consult a probate attorney in your jurisdiction with all of the specifics.
