Since Mr.A has paid the entire consideration for the property; Mr. A can very well file a suit for declaration of absolute ownership over the property.

B has an equal share in the flat. Hence, property cannot be sold without his prior consent.

Absolute ownership cannot be assumed unless and until B relinquishes his share in A's favour, which would require B to make a relinquishment deed or family settlement in A's favour.
