This is in ragards to my Mother's share in her Ancestral property. She is hindu and from Maharashtra.We stay in Mumbai. My Mother has 3 brothers and 3 sisters.All three sisters are married and settled in Mumbai and her 2 brothers are also staying in Mumbai since long time. Her third yonger most bother is staying in Village and taking care of their Ancestral house & property.
My mother is demanding her share in this property but that brother who stays in Village denying her share in that Ancestral house and property. My mother is looking her share in Ancestral house and the lawn around it.But that brother is denying any share in house and lawn and only ready to give land which is not convenient and suitable to live and far away from main road somwhere in hilly location.
Infact he is not ready to give any share to any other brother and sisters in that ancestarl house and lawn (Land around that home) giving the reason that all other brothers moved to Mumbai for their carrier and Job and settled in Mumbai and all sisters are married and he is the only who is statying and taking care of their property in village and has no other source of income.
Regarding this I have few queries
1) Can my Mother demand her share in Ancestral property?
2) Can she or any other siblings can demand their share in Ancestral house and land around it along with other land?
3) As that brother is staying in that Ancestral house and taking care of property has he became sole owner of that house and property?
4) Can he deny any sibling's share in Ancestral house and land?
