1. Under the present law (which i think cannot be changed) the daughter-in-law has no rights in the property owned by her parents-in-law.

2. She needs the permission of her in-laws to even live in the property owned by them.

3. Her rights are confined to the properties owned either entirely by her or jointly by her and her husband. She can enforce her right to stay in the matrimonial home.

Hello,
1) As far as property rights are concerned the daughter in law has no right whatsoever in either the inherited or ancestral property of the parent in laws.

2) The only enforceable right is right to residence, either shared or separate and this comes in question only when there is a marital dispute between the husband and the wife.

3) The husband will have any right in the property only after the death of his parents.

Hi, daughter-in-law has no right to claim property either self acquired or ancestral property. They are entitled to claim maintenance from the husband.
