Property dispute

Dear Sir, 

My father in law allowed his married sister to live on a ancestors land on ground of kindness as her husband who is previously married was not a good person. My father in law sister don't have any child from this marriage but her husband has a girl from his previous marriage. Now the husband has died and her step daughter is claiming the property to be given to them. But the property solely belong to my father in law as he inherited from his father. Can my aunt step daughter claim the property?

You mentioned the property being ancester property the right of sister in ancester property is still there ,but the legacy is not corect as the claimant is step daughter of your aunt and her right to ancesters property may not be vaible.If your aunt calims share and then gifts or other transfer to her step daughter then that is applicable

Her father himself did not have any rights in his wife's property. 

In fact your father in law sister herself is not having any rights in the property. 

Hence the stepdaughter is not having any rights over the property. 

Her claim is legally not maintainable
