Hello,
Give a reply notice through lawyer stating these properties are acquired out of your father own earnings and if s not ancestral property. Since all the documents stands in your father 's name and his brother wife s claiming it to be ancestral property the burden lies on them to prove the same. As the documents reflects that your father is the owner of the property to prove the same you can show your father' s earnings to prove property was acquired out of his own earnings.

The internet is not a lawyer and neither are you.
Talk to a real lawyer about your legal issue.

The notice sent should be replied with the help of legal practitioner, as the division of the property pertaining to your father is not a joint family property as it self acquired property not bourne out of the joint family funds. Hence it cannot be considered as joint family property
