Who are legal heirs

Page no : 2

Prabakar (SSE)     31 December 2012

My father died last year. Myself, my mother, brother and grandmother(father's mother) are legal heirs.

Last month my grandmother also died.

so now who will get my grandmother's share..? Also, she has 3 sons other than my father. Will they get that share..?

But properties are earned by my father only..!

Suggest me what to do..!?

Thanks & Regards,

My father died recently and he left the bank accounts, safe deposit box and shares on his name and he has not nominated anybodies name.......But he wrote a WILL on my name although I have two sisters......But he clearly mentioned my name solely on the WILL........when i visited the Bank and they say since Nominee is not there I have to go through their procedure where I have to bring the signature of everybody and submit it to the bank to close the bank account and get the amount........They say WILL will not allow them to do that............I was surprised by hearing that because then WILL is just piece of paper which has no value.................If anybody has any idea please let me know............

My fathers case is going in the High Court about the property matters with the builder, and he has given me the special judicial power of attorney. Unfortunately my father expired. Now the question is that, Is my special judicial power of attorney valid. Because in the last paragraph of the attorney my father said the i hereby, for myself, my heirs, my executor, my adminstrators and my legal representatives, ratify and confirm and agree to ratify and confirm whatsoever our said shall do or purport to do by virtue of these present.


Please help me. and will the case be transfered on my name. and can i fight for my father and give him justices.


Please help me.
