This seems like a very unfair situation. You must take strict action to remedy this situation. First step would be to shoot a strongly worded Legal Notice through an advocate reminding them of your legal rights and remedies and issue straight warning to them. Further and better particulars are needed for an effective opinion.

Hello Sir I have perused your query. In these circumstances you have an option to file / lodge a Complaint / FIR under section 425 of IPC for mischief or 503 of IPC for criminal intimidation or both.
Also you can file a criminal complaint under section 403 of IPC for dishonest misappropriation of property.

Query perused. I would advise you to issue a legal notice to the concerned restraining her from selling the joint property and for return of documents and keys. Failing which you can file a Suit for Mandatory injunction thereby restraining the defendants from alienating the property without your consent. For further consultancy and legal services you may contact us.
