quesIn how much time can heirs claim property of the deceased?

After the death of the owner, in how many days can the legal heirs claim the said property?

  • ansIf no Will was made,

    Then a partition suit can be filed in the concerned civil court regarding the distribution of the property.


    If there was a Will then,

    You can make application for probate of will . probate is judicial proof that will is genuine . if under will executor is appointed he can  file testamentary petition for probate . notice will be issued to all legal heirs . if no legal heir files any caveat or opposes will probate would be granted   for properties mentioned in the will.
