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.
