Co-owners mean all the owners of a property. If the property is owned by more than one person, it is called joint ownership. the In case of coparceners, the male members and daughters have a Mon and an equal interest in ancestral property 

According to the land revenue record, a co-sharer is a person who owns a portion of a specific plot of property. Although his real possession may only be on a small portion of the land, a co-sharer is presumed to own every square inch of the ground.



Hindu succession law uses the term "coparcener" to describe a person who is born into a Hindu Undivided Family and so receives a legal claim to their ancestral property (HUF). Everyone born into a Hindu family is a coparcener by the Hindu Succession Act of 1956. It's necessary to comprehend what a HUF is before continuing.


Co-owner or joint owner 

Co-owners are all of the property's owners. Joint ownership is the term used when more than one individual owns the property. The male members and daughters in a coparcener have an equal interest in the ancestral property.
