Which documents? The term 'property' although not specifically defined by the Act for the purpose of Section 15 of the Act, means the property of the deceased Hindu female heritable under the Act. It includes both movable and/ or immovable properties owned and acquired by a Hindu female by virtue of inheritance or at the partition or by gift or by purchase. The Section does not differentiate between the property inherited by a Hindu female and the self-acquired property of a Hindu female. It only prescribes that if a property is inherited from the husband or father-in-law, it would go to her husband's heirs and if the property is inherited from her father or mother, in that case, in the absence of her issues, the property would not go to her husband or his heirs but to the heirs of her father.
