My father, a Christian, owned a property in Kerala. He passed away in 2012 without making a will, leaving behind his wife, 2 sons and 3 daughters. My father had intended for the property to go his two sons. My mother and my 3 sisters are willing to relinquish any claims to the property. We have been paying the property taxes in our father's name since the time he passed away.
Can someone please guide me on the steps that need to be taken to have the ownership of the property transferred to me and my brother? I believe we will need sworn affidavits from our mother and all 3 sisters relinquishing their claims to the property. Is it just enough to do the mutation in the land revenue records with the village or do we need to execute some sort of a deed and register the same with the registrar? Greatly appreciate your valuable guidance.
