1. If your father is alive, you ave nothing to do with the property or its rent now,

2. If he has demised, file a partition suit claiming your share of the property including the share of the rent,

3. Engage a lawyer having expertise in the field.

1)since the property is valued at over Rs 3 crores dont take any risk . better engage a local lawyer and discuss the issue with him on payment of his consultancy fees . 

2) you have not mentioned whether property is self acquired property or ancestral property . 


3) if it is self acquired property none of the children have any right in said property during father life time . 

4) father can dispose his share of property as he pleases . 

5) if your father dies without  a will on his demise his share would devolve on your mother and all children .

1. You have not mentioned whether the property is self purchased of your father, or it is ancestral in character. Another facet in respect of which there is no mention in the query, relates to the duration for which the property is joint. 

2. The property which is self purchased by your father belongs to him and only him. He can dispose it at his sweet will. After his life time all his children will have an equal share in the property if he does not make a will.

3. You may move to court for partition of joint property subject to the antecedent ownership and duration of joint character. 

4. It is in your interest to consult a lawyer personally after payment of his consultancy fee.
