Cancelling the settlement deed
One year back my Mother and Brother influenced (emotional pressure) my Father and got the property settlement on their name without the knowledge of me and my other Sisters (all Daughters). Father is bedridden, having less mobility and not able to speak much. He can speak little with great difficulty. He is physically fully dependent on them. All Daughters are married, Mother and Brother’s family creates some nuisance such a way Daughters could not freely visit Father’s home and meet Father, so Daughters are always kept away. Recently all Daughters had a chance to meet Father, he disclosed the matter and his willingness to settle the property to all his children equally including my Brother. After knowing this they are very angry with us and my Mother is threatening saying that she will suicide if we try to meet and get the property from my Father. The property (commercial building) is fully earned by my Father, but my Mother wants to give it to son only. Now we could not enter the house and meet my Father.
We have recorded my Father’s willingness (audio and video), when we meet him, he tried to speak with some difficulty and conveyed to us his interest.
1. Is it possible to cancel the settlement deed (it might be registered as gift settlement, we do not have access to documents) with the above evidence what we have?
2. Now what we can do to proceed further and get the property as per my Father’s interest. We are helpless now even though my wants to give the property to us.
