My Issue is, I live in London from past 10 years, two year back my father passed away. We are both sons to my father and i am elder son. My younger brother live in India.
We have a 1200 square yard property in India. my father mother brother myself living in that property, during when am live in London, my younger brother did forgery sign of my father and prepared a Gift deed on his name for 800 square yard in the property and my younger brother not even intimated me, now he was telling this gift deed has been given by my father when he was alive and one of the witness who is relative of our family did signature for the deed as witness.
As for the municipal records, the property shows on my father name and it say gift deed is on my younger brother name.
Now the property is going under road winding and government is giving compensation we got letter from government officials saying that amount will be paid. this letter is on my father name.
Because of forgery done by my brother, he is enjoying the property and Cheque which government is ready to issue the amount.
Actually, the property of my father has to be shared between two sons, unfortunately my brother is not accepting to share equally with me he was pointing out 800 square yard is a gift deed to him.
1. In this situation, i need suggestion what can i do if I want to get the property in equal share with my brother.
2. Can I request the government authority to stop issuing cheque to my brother and in letter which we received from government authority the property is on my father name, as for the municipal record it says gift deed is on my brother name.
3. Can i Have a right to stop this drama of brother,who did a forgery sign of my father.
4. In what way i can approach to stop issuing amount from government, as a elder brother i want to resolve this family dispute completely without any hurdles.
your valuable advice/suggestion required.
