My mother purchased an apartment in chennai in the year 2002. She died interstate in the year 2011. We are 2 brothers and 2 sisters. My 2 sisters did a settlement deed of their shares in my favour after my mother's death. One of my sister after executing settlement deed contested through her lawyer asking for the setllement deed to be revoked. The case was dismissed due to default as she didn't serve us.
My brother is holding the remaining. 1/4 share. Now me and my brother have agreed to sell the apartment. Do we need to apply for a succession certificate from the court to be furnished to the purchaser. How can we be issued a succession certificate if she objects and is there any alternative to the succession certificate.
Would appreciate if expert lawyers can provide some answers to my problems.
