Q. Need clarity about Gold and Cash assets in the name of my late brother

We are 7 brothers and I am the 5th one.
My late mother has got a Will registered (in 2001) for her own cash and gold assets in her eldest son Jagadeesha’s (1st) unmarried and youngest Harinath’s (7th) married sons names.
In 2016, Jagadeesha has died and we are not sure if he has written/ registered any will for the cash and gold that he has got in his name.
Since he was unmarried, what happens to the assets (Cash and Gold) he has got from our mother? Can we (the other 5 bothers except Harinath {7th son}) claim that or if he has written any will for that, how do we get to know about that?

A. Yes all you claim late Jagadeesha's property. You all need to apply for and obtain Legal heirship or Succession Certificate first.

A. The asset of Cash & Gold in safe custody will pass as per the Act, as per the will, If any dispute or contest by any of the legal heir as per the outcome of the Court matter, better to consult a property professional Lawyer for quick guidance & help under the Act on all aspects of the legal issue.
