First of all you have to mention about the property of your parents. Whether the property is self acquired by your parents or acquired from the ancestors. If the property is self acquired by your father/parents, then you have no right to claim. If the property is an ancestral (acquired from your grand fathers) then you can claim your share by way of filing a Partition Suit

Presuming that you are Hindu, you have equal rights along with your other siblings in the ancestral property post amendment in the Hindu Succession Act 1956. You can approach the jurisdictional civil court and file a suit for partition of the property and for claiming your share in the property.
