Brother evicted mother from father's house after his death. What to do
My mother is 82 years old. We are 3 sisters and 1 brother. My father expired 6 years back. Now my brother living in father's self made house, evicted our mother from the house. What all action can we take and what all are her rights?
Evicting your mother is totally illegal and you can file a suit for declaration, injunction and Partition and get an order from the court allowing your mother to resume residence in the house.
Also, if your father has passed away intestate then all of you have a share in the property and hence the need to file a suit for partition.
She has full right to live in her husbands property. However in case the deceased has left behind a will than, the contents of the will needs to be taken into account before giving any opinion. In the meantime, file a suit for Injunction and the court will ensure that she is not dispossessed without due process of law, if at all required.
