Family settlement will not be valid just because the family has made it.

There are certain laws which the Society is bound to follow.

First of all, where is this property located as the state laws of registration and stamp duty for the settlement as well as transfer of property will be applicable.

Also, which caste and religion you belong to is also important as succession laws depends on the religion.

Therefore, it is better that you share proper all the facts and details for better understanding of your issue and to suggest you accordingly.

Hope that this helps !
