who is the legal heir to a property if the owner (hindu) is dead


Hi Can u help me what is the procedure to buy a home where owner died and his wife is willing to sell the property. Who would be the legal hiers. Owner was surviving with his wife, daughter and his parents. I am being told that the case is in court and I too have to visit as buyer of the home

Dear Querist, If a Hindu dies intestate then the wife and all the children (sons/ daughters ) are the legal heirs.
If a will is made then the property will be divided as per the will, but the same is unchallenged.
In your case, Please check the share certificate/ Sale agreement and ask for details of all the son/daughter of deceased. IF required issue a public notice through advocate, write letter to Society seeking details.

Please feel free to contact us, if any further queries.

Regards,
Rakesh V. Misar
