We are two brothers and one married sister and all are above 60 years old.My father recently expired.He shared his/our ancestral property between my brother and myself in the year 1982 with a word of mouth.Since he is retired govt employee and staying in the village he was looking after the shared lands.He kept the house under his possession and the house also not self acquired.After sharing the lands, my father got another 70 cents of land as his share from my grandmother which is also ancestral property.But though it was not required, our father and his brother who are entitled to the property got a written will from my grandmother specifying the land details with sy.numbers.subsequently,my father executed a will in fvr of my brother with rights to 70cents land and house for which I was not aware and came to know only after my father'sdeath.My mother is still alive and the original will deeds executed by my grandmother and my father are inmy possession.Myself, mother and sister are against the will executed by my father and what is the legal course we can opt?In the will executed by my father says that he is giving it from the share he got while sharing the properties which is not written at the time of sharing propertiesin 1982 between the two brothers.
Revenue authorities advising me to go to court and they are helpless in this scenario.My father recorded the 70 cents land in his name in the revenue records which was unfair on his part.
Since there is no written partition deed, can I contest on my father's will? secondly, the land my father got from my grandmother is different from the land executed in my father's will in fvr of my brother. The survey numbers differ.
Further, the boundaries are not correct as mentioned in the will executed by my father.
Kindly advise to get my share in the properties.
with best regards,
Eluru,West Godawari District,Andhra Pradesh.
