Sister-in-law creating trouble
(Querist) 20 September 2023
This query is : Resolved
My father have two brothers (let's call them A & B) Our property originally belonged to A who recently gifted the entire property to my father. B passed away last year. Now his dead son's widow (my sister-in-law) is demanding property from my father. They lived with us for 10 years and troubled us the entire time. I wanted to know if my sister-in-law has any rights over the property. Is it possible to evict them? We don't share a good relation with them and she is giving threats to my father. Ours is not an ancestral property. The property was build by brother A who gifted it to my father.

If A had gifted his self acquired property to B by a registered gift deed, then it becomes an absolute property of B, in which nobody can claim any share as a right, including the donor.
Now that the donor is also dead, the legal heirs of the donor cannot claim any rights over the property.
