Acquiring Duplicate Documents of Your Inherited Property

Ancestral Real Estate & Inheritance Advisory

Ancestral or Hindu coparcenary property refers to any property acquired by the Hindu great grandfather, which then passes  undivided down the next three generations up to the present generation of great grandson/daughter. In short, firstly, this property should be four generation old, secondly it should not have been divided by the users in the joint Hindu family as once a division of the property takes place, the share or portion which each Coparcenar gets after the division becomes his or her self acquired property. The right to a share in ancestral or coparcenary property accrues by birth itself, unlike other forms of inheritance, where inheritance opens only on the death of the owner. The rights in ancestral property are determined per stripes and not per capita. This means that the share of each generation is first determined and the successive generations in turn sub divide what has been inherited by their respective predecessor. Properties inherited from mother, grandmother, uncle and even brother is not ancestral property. Property inherited by will and gift are not ancestral properties.

Most of the overseas citizens of India are heirs to a piece of land or property in India owned by their parents, grandparents or great grandparents. Only hand ful have documents of the inherited property, a few would know the details and many know only the area it is located in. In fact out of those with documents and details, there is sizeable no. of NRI’s who have been deceived by their relatives in India.

The relatives or friends have made these non residents sign some papers (stating that it is an document to be used in their absence to look after the property), have had the property of the NRI’s transferred in their names, illegally occupy their lands, give wrong information about the documentation done regarding the land etc.
