Nominees in ownership flats are trustees and hold the flats in trust for the legal beneficiaries of the owners, they do not get any ownership rights. In your case the Husband and wife are considered equal owners in both the flats, on demise of the husband his share in both the flats will be shared equally between all of his legal beneficiaries, that is between his wife and children. Since one of the owners, of both the flats, is alive the nominees do not have any role to play. The wife can reqeust the society to endorse the share certificates of both the flats to her individual name after observing the necessary legal procedure.
