it is better to convene a meeting among family members and thereafter with the consent of everyone the property can be divided and accordingly the said understanding be reduced in writing. The same need to be registered so that no conflict will arise in future. However you have not furnished regarding the details of property purchased by your grandfather either before or after the death of your aunt and son. Subject to that the same can be divided as per the law and under the succession act.

Hope your grand father was a hindu and based on that assumption in the case of intestate succession all the properties other than which was registered in the name of the living daughter will devolve upon the living heirs .

As your father and another aunt died before your grandfather, their sons and daughters also shall be entitled to a share each, together with your grandmother and the surviving aunt, by virtue of intestate succession. Total shares four.
