My husband died in June last year . No division was done .There was no will. I have two sons and one daughter . My husband had got a plot of land from his father which is a ancestral property . On that plot my husband had constructed a building . Whether I have a right on ancestral Plot, or on building built by my husband or on both after his death.Or dont have any right on anything. Or I will get only maintenance ? Please advise.

The property of a Hindu male dying intestate is distributed among his heirs in accordance with section 8 and 9 of The Hindu Succession Act, 1956. As per these the property of a Hindu dying intestate devolves upon his heirs of Class I who take the property to the exclusion of all other heirs. The property of an intestate shall be divided among the heirs in class I of the Schedule in accordance with the following rules:-
Rule 1.-The intestate’s widow, or if there are more widows than one, all the widows together, shall take one share.
Rule 2.-The surviving sons and daughters and the mother of the intestate shall each take one share
