Thanks for asking query to me.
That the mother and children is nominee of that house/ property.
They are not owner of that property. But after death of father mother and children have legal rights in that property. Children have equally right in that property. Mother can not sold that house simultaneously. Nominee is not owner of property its mere nomination .

Hello dear querist, thank you for your query, as per your query i would like to suggest that even though the Father has named your and your son's name in the nomination form of your flat, it doesn't mean that you or your son becomes owner of the flat. As per law you and your son are legal heirs of your husband but you need to apply for succession certificate for the same. For more detailed information kindly contact on my number

Nominee is not the owner but the trustee of the property and therefore is merely a caretaker of the property till the legal heirs attend the maturity. In your case the nominee is also a legal heir so she also has the beneficial rights over the property as held by bombay high court in case of Ramdas Shivram Sattur in 2009.
