    If the property is self acquired property and not an Ancestral Property or HUF (Hindu Undivided Property)  then the father can do whatever he pleases with the property which includes giving it or a share of it to his wife. 

     

  • ansYes, your father can give the property to his wife as she is also a Legal heir. As per law if your father dies without a Will then the property will devolve amongst all his legal heir including your mother and sister.
