Property Possession

Architect

We have a property duly in joint name with my mother (defendant) and father's younger brother(plantiff) purchased in 1977. The whole amt for purchase and construction subsequently was paid by mother and out of my father's affection he included his brother's name in sale deed as joint owner. The prime issue was that weather the property was purchased and construced jointly and hence liable for partition & compensation? The lower court, after 5 years of trial, pronounced the judgement that since plantiff was unable to prove that he has paid any money to purchase the property and construction, hence no compensation is awarded. The court has rejected and decreed the same despite his name in sale deed on basis that compensation can be granted only when there is money paid during buying of property.

My question is that does it mean that my mother is 100% owner of property? Also how can we recover the possesion of property? Please advise.

Has your mother proved that the entire amount was paid by her out of her earning or the earning of her husband?

On what document has she proved ownership? There ought to be some documentary evidence. It court has accepted that she is the absolute owner of the property, you can challenge that decision but you must have sufficient grounds/proof to do so.

I donot how you can reclaim your share.

1. She is already owner of property (sale deed/ registry in her name).

2. Truth factor 'my mother has paid money and constructiion amount', my father has induced his name because of affection.

3. She has proved paying money as she was employed since 1975 in govt school with source of income. Plantiff was unemployed till 1980 and started working only with my father as joint faimly and business. This has been proved in court

4. Court has passed decree that plantiff has no right in property and hence his case for partition and compensation is quashed.

My understanding is that since plantiff has no right in property, my mother is bsolute owner of the property. How should be recover the possesion if so? Any advise
