mr mr

we had/have an ancestral property in the village . it is about 23 acres of land . It was being looked after by my grandfather's brother as custodian. My Grandfather's brother passed away in 2000 .His son in law who was staying with him all along started selling the property and by now he has sold all the 22 acres in last 20 years without consenting anyone . We assume my grandfather's brother has transferred all the documents in his son in law's name either through gift deed / Will ( even though it is a ancestral property ) . Now we are asking him not to sell this last piece of land which is an ancestral home and he is not agreeing. Can we take legal action to stop the sale of this last piece of land ?

A.You can file an injunction suit to stop the sale proceeds. Then file a suit claiming that amount you are supposed to get from the previous sale proceeds of your ancestral property and partition on the remaining ancestral property,

A.Hi,
File a complaint for cheating and fraud against the son-in-law. You can then file a civil money recovery suit against him for all the property he has already sold.
You are the legal heir and as such can file a suit for declaration of title of the last acre.

A.Hi,
Serve him with legal notice. You have a right over the land, not him. Ancestral property cannot be transferred by way of gift deeds or wills, unless it was with the consent of all legal heirs.
