Indian Law/Property Issue


Hi my name is shiv. My grandfather passed away about 20 years ago. He has 2 sons. My grandfather owned a house in Mumbai and after my grandfather my dad owns it since last 20 years. My dad is the elder son. The younger son i.e. my uncle never came to mumbai in these 20 years. He always stay in UP. In these 20 years my dad helped my uncle a lot in terms of money. My grandmother had some amount of money with her and all of that was given to my uncle. My dad did not get a share in it. Now my uncle claims a share in this house. Please provide a solution.

If a man dies intestate, then after his death, his wealth passes to his legal heirs preferably class-I comprising widow,sons/daughters etc.and otherwise to class-II comprising his father, brothers/sisters etc.on the basis of the Succession Certificate issued by the court.However, if he has made a WILL, then his wealth will be distributed to persons as per his last desire made in it.For the purpose of execution of the WILL, it is required to be probated.
Now,in the instant case,you have not mentioned ,whether grand-father made any WILL.If not ,then after his death, his wealth will pass to his two sons equally on the basis of the Succession Certificate to be issued by the court.
