Questions Answered by Advocate Shantosh Kumar Behara

Q: Grand father passed away without mentioning my father in his last will

My grand father (gf) divided his property among my 2 uncles & my father (my father being the eldest son), circa 2007.Due to unforeseen circumstances, my father fell into debt and had to sell his part of property (with gf’s permission). Around 2008.Gf wanted to divide the property again in 3 parts for 3 sons. My father refused as it would be unfair to his other brothers but Gf was adamant. He mentioned he wants to make sure, his eldest son and only 3 grand sons ( me and my 2 brothers) should never leave his house even after his death and my uncles assured him that ofcourse they will always let my father and us stay at the house. We started paying rent to one of my uncle whose part of property we were living in. Gf passed away in 2012 without any new will.Last year, due to some dispute (unrelated to the property), my uncle threw my parents (my siblings and i live abroad for work) out.Can we lay claim to part of the property? Thank you.
