A father can disinherit his son from his self-acquired property only, and not from his ancestral property. Self-acquired property refers to property that is not inherited but is self-made out of one’s own funds and resources. Property acquired through a brother or an uncle may also be categorised as self-acquired. A property acquired through a gift deed or through a will is also self-acquired. Ancestral property is that which is inherited from a common ancestor- from father, grandfather or great grandfather. The common ancestor should be a direct male lineal ancestor.
You need to prove that the property is ancestral. Or else, the father can give the property to your siblings.
If a son is able to prove that his funds or resources were used by his father to build his (the father’s) self-acquired property, the father cannot deny the son his share. You need to prove that your money had been used to build the house - if your parents have used your money to do the same.
Similarly, if a father dies without a will, his self-acquired property will be inherited by the son, in case the father has not created a will, bequeath the property to somebody else. He may also choose to gift it anyone he wants through a gift deed.
Hope that this has given a better idea to you.
