Need Advice on Property.
My wife's Grandfather is trying to evict my wife's Aunt & Uncle & us, from the family house. Wherein the Upper Entire floor of the bungalow is occupied by 4(Grandfather 2nd wife their daughter & grandson) While the Lower part of the same space is divided into 3 houses for (The Children of the 1st wife i.e. my late father-in-law, his sister's family, & brother's family)
The scenario started with an argument followed with the denial of the bore-well water which is used for all our domestic needs.
The old BMC pipes installed ages ago are still there but the multi tapped points before the water can reach us has increased over the yrs & the flow of the BMC water is very less, we just barely manage drinking & basic cooking water.
Any ways soon after the dispute for water, there was a summon sent by the grandfather , who is well versed with legal matters since for the past 30 yrs, since he's been fighting with everyone in sight,
he can put a case on anyone even if by mistake they look into his property.
That is the greatness of this 87 yrs old man.
Anyways, since the case is going on . we have moved out of the house . & have rented a place elsewhere.
We won a small case (out of I don't know how many more to come) , Rather the judge dismissed a case regarding the denial of water to us from the common pump which is in the compound of the house & some other case got dismissed, I don’t exactly know, I‘ll know after I get the copy.
My point in short is that 1stly we can't afford to keep on fighting this case endlessly, because every case he slaps onto us we have to fight the case .
However crude it may sound I'm not generalizing this statement. What the lawyer is saying that you don’t leave the case you are sitting on a pot of gold. Keep fighting, you don't know what small prints are there in the Tenancy Act anything can happen you can loose the house...
& I asked . is there any limit to the cases he can keep putting on us & the answer was NO .
You may have to fight endlessly.. After he’s through, then may be the second wife, after her his second wife's daughter & so on ..
Now the land on which he has built the house is inherited from his father.
& later, if he makes the will on his second wife's daughter's name. we still keep on fighting ..
Basically I need to know is there any law in the book stating he can evict us whatsoever.
because he is trying to evict us by calling us tenants .
We been staying there for the past 7 yrs but we don't have any papers transferred on our name . since its the family & we never knew it would come to this .
Pls advice on what to do . do we keep spending on this futility & reduce our basic expenditure on our 1 yr daughter who needs more attention than this .
Finally … if we just don't fight cases . Hire a reasonable lawyer & keep loosing or I don't know technically what's it called . But just letting it all go & see ultimately what happens .
CAN HE LEGALLY THROW US OUT OF OUR OWN HOMES.
Pls pardon me if I did not explain it too well . pls feel free to ask me any question .
I'll be referring to this page every day .
