Can sold ancestral property proceeds be divided?

My uncle inherited some anscestral property as he was the only son of this father. His father got the property under will from his father. My uncle sold the property and bought a  house in Bangalore. He has willed the house to his daughter as his son is very well off. But his son is claiming that since the house was bought from the proceeds of the sale from the anscestral property, he has a right to the house too. Any advice?

It is believed that your uncle is Hindu.

According to the law for Hindus, self acquired property is any property purchased by an individual from his resources or any property he acquired as a part of the division of any Ancestral/Coparcenary property or acquired as a legal heir or by any Testamentary document such as ‘Will’ etc.

Thus the property acquired by WILL is self acquired and the owner can give it away as he pleases.


However it shall be appropriate to show all docs and records to a lawyer specializing in such matters at your location in person.
