Daughter's right to property
Dear Sir / mam, I married my wife on 10th FEB 2014. Now I am living in Chennai and have one girl child. My wife is the only daughter to her family. Her Mom was dead on 6months before my marriage. Now last year back her father married a woman and she is having 20yrs girl child. Her father is having one property in Chennai. The property is under her father name. Actually the property was bought on 20yrs back. My wife mother was sold her gold ornaments and her own properties got from her mother side. Now my wife is asking for the property. He is telling that I will write all properties to a new married woman. You have no rights to ask. You go anywhere and put case on me. No one will do anything. Now my wife was helpless to get her rights. No document copy also with her. So kindly help……………………………… Rgds Balaji.s
The property is in the name of her father and therefore he is free to do whatever he likes. If the property was purchased jointly then there would have been a case. Otherwise you can't demand a share unless it is an ancestral property.
If the property purchased in the name of your mother in law then your wife can claim partition suit against her father and if the property purchased in the name of your father in law then you can't do anything till the death of your father in law during his lifetime he can dispos off the property as per his own choice.
