Anything can happen to her during operation. If something goes wrong with her. Before planning for operation, she is trying to make a will to distribute this property with her friends and relatives.

Request for your advice as to Who can claim this property? Can she distribute property as per her will?

1.Through testamentary succession/Will you can bequeath her property to anyone she chooses.
So let her decide  whom to transfer her property.

2. In absence of 1st class heir, her property on death if no Will has been executed will devolve upon her 2nd class heirs like brothers/sisters etc.

Leave the decision to herself only.

1. Only the person or persons to whocm she will bequeath her share of the property, can claim it. No body else,

2. Yes, after the demise of her husband she has inherited her husband's share of the property which she can gift/will/sale to any body she wishes to,

3. In case of selling the said share of the property, she has to offer it first to the other share holders at the same price which has been offered by other buyers.
