Will for co-owned property

Hi Dear Learned Advocates,

I have a will from my grandfather in my name for a residential house. This house was co- owned by my Grandfather and Grandmother. Grandmother did not leave a will.

Does that mean I have right to only 50% of the property and rest would be owned by my father and his siblings.


Please advice.

Yes you will get 50% share in the questioned property by your grand father's will and rest 50% share of your grand mother will be equally divided among your father and his brother and sisters.

Dear Mr. Anshu,

It depends on question of whether such property self aquired by your grandfather or it is ancestral property

Hi Mr Murty,

The property is self acquired by my grandfather. His name appears on the sale deed. Will it change the situation.


Best Regards,
