My father passed away 6 years back without leaving a will. He is survived by me, my sister who is married and my step mother.
This is with regards to our residential property which my father had bought 10 years back. The agreement of the flat lists both my father and step mother as owners.
Me and my step mother have decided to separate.
I would like to know if I have any rights in the property and upto what extent.
My mother was advised that out of the proceeds received from the sale of flat, her share would be half of the total amount + 1/3rd of the remaining half.
I tried reading up on intestate succession, and what I understood is that my step mother, me and my sister are class 1 heirs, with each receiving 1 share each .. i.e. 1.3rd each.
Also, we wish to settle amicably. The doubt is only about the % share of us three out of sale proceeds of the house.
Would appreciate guidance in this matter.
