    When Peter's grandmother died

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural.

    When Peter's grandmother died and left him the money, he seized the opportunity to buy his first home.

    I'd use "some money" or "all of her money", rather than "the money". Otherwise, it's OK.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    "The money" can work if you already mentioned/discussed a certain sum of money in your text.
