your father had bequeathed 50% share in property through registered will and after demise of your father you became 50% owner of his property and remaining 50% share of property to other co-sharer.your 50% share of property is being used by other co-sharer and you have every right to sell,gift or transfer your share in property so you have also right to claim rent from other co-sharer as your share is being used by him.

As per the Will the testator bequeathed the property to two beneficiaries with equal share in the property. Now upon enforcing the Will, the shareholders are entitled to 50% share alone each out of the property. As you have mentioned that your share in the property is being used by the other shareholder, you have all the rights to demand a fir rent from him for using your share of property, if he denies or refuses to pay the rent demanded, yo may lock your portion of property and do not allow him to use the same after that, besides, you may even issue a legal notice demanding the arrears of rent for using your share of property so far , subsequently you may file a suit for recovery of rental amount (even though there is no rental agreement) based on the legal notice.
