If the house and agricultural land is an self acquired property, then your grandfather can transfer the property to whoever he desires.

However if the property is ancestral property then, as per the Hindu Succession Act  he cannot transfer the property without your consent and your father's consent.

If the property is ancestral property, we suggest you to file a suit for partition thereby demanding your share and your father share in property.

In addition to the partition suit you can also file an application for temporary injunction on property that is the  grandfather cannot sell the property till the disposal of suit.
