Distribution Of Inheritance

Question

My mother, sister and I are the only legal heirs to my father. He has left behind a house. Now, we have mutually decided to sell it. Please let me ascertain the shares of each one, if the price is Rs.20 million


Answer

Assuming that there are no other heirs like father or mother of the deceased and you are the only heirs the property shall be distributed like this:

1. Any debt or wills have to be fulfilled.

2. The wife of the deceased (your mother) gets 1/8 of the whole property.

3. The remaining is split in three equal shares. Two shares go to the boy (ie you) and one to the daughter (ie your sister).
