after the death of your father all his legal heirs, you, your brother, your sister and your mother are the legal owners of the said property. each of you holds 1/4 th share of the said property. for more better advice more information is needed.

As per the Hindu Succession Act 1956, if a male Hindu dies intestate (Without making any Will), the property shall devolved upon the First Class legal heirs; you, your brother, your sister, your mother, all fall under Class-I legal heir, hence all of you four shall be the absolute owners of the property having undivided proportionate 1/4th share each. All the best. Regards
