My father passed away few years ago without any will and now the elder brother is looking at the day to day business of the my fathers hotel. But he seems to feel that he alone is the legal hier to the income from it. He has run the business well but it doesn't entitles him to the complete business income. I am in the service industry and doing a job. What are my options for reclaiming a share in the income of the hotel. I humbly ask for guidance.
You should instantly call for the partition of property , as the property belongs to your father all his legal heirs are share holders. Before it will be too late and your brother will try to change the title or nature of property diametrically , just secure your rights.
Thanks Real Soul for your comments. He had done the name change in the property share certificate after convincing me and my sister that he needs it to get the hotel license in his name for smooth functioning of the business and we both did sign the papers and the society added his name and my mothers name in the property share certificate. After the beer bar license was made on his and my mothers name I asked him to change the property share certificate and he agreed and we have submitted the affidavit for it on court stamp papers to the society secretary and hopefully the share certificate will reflect my name as well. But what should I do after that. I hope I am legally entitled to the hotels income as well. Can he counter this claim legally in any way.
