As we understand your query you wish that, the house should be registered in your name as your brother moved out of the house 25 years ago.

Assuming you are Hindus,

the division of the property is going to happen according to the Hindu Succession act.

As per our understanding, since your parents died intestate i.e. without making a Will, you and your brother has equal share in property and only after partition of property by filing a case for partition, the share you get could be registered in your name.
