Indian Law/Property distribution


Dear sir,my grandfather has two son(A&B) and two daughter(C&D).B,C& D has no son and daughter .A is my father .He has one son and one daughter .C&D got married.
My grandfather gave some money to C and make the separate bond to C as "there is no link to you (C) from my property ".
After that  at the time of property distribution to sons my grand father showed one house in bond ,he gave some money to B and D and the remaining house to A also he mentioned as "after me whatever may be the property from my ancient" to A only but he did not mention what was that in bond {At the time of bound no one knows the property but now i found out few lands}.In that bond A,B,C,D all are signed.

Now question is who has rights to that new  Land?

As per the provisions of the Hindu Succession Act,if a person dies intestate, then  his wealth passes to his/her legal heirs as per the Succession Certificate issued by the court.However, if he made a WILL,then as per the declarations made in his/her last made WILL.

In the instant case , if your grand-father died intestate, his wealth will be distributed amongst his legal heirs preferably to class-I comprising his widow and children etc and otherwise to his class-II heirs in order of preference.In case , he made a WILL, to persons mentioned in it.

Further, only the true owner can mortgage/pledge his property to the Lender as a security for loan and no one else and transfer of property will be subject to the said encumbrance.Moreover, it should be executed on a non-judicial stamp-paper of appropriate value and it is to be signed only by your grand-father and no one else.

Present ownership of the property can be easily ascertained by verifying the title-deed.

In view of the above,please take appropriate decisions on the matter in consultation with a property lawyer.
