Since both your parents are the owners of the said flat, the flat cannot be sold if either of the owners doesn't want to sell that. As your mother is not agreeable to sell her share, your father can only sell his undivided proportionate share, where it's really difficult to get such buyer. However, if you apprehend that your father may cheat and forge the mother's signature and can sell the entire flat to outsider, your mother shall have to approach the Learned Civil Court concerned for obtaining an order of injunction and once such order is passed the flat cannot be sold out. All the best. Regards
