I am a Catholic by religion., I would like your advise on the following i.e.
We have a property lying in Bandra (West) which is an ancestral property. At present my Mother, we four sisters are staying along with my sister-in-law (who is a non catholic) .and her childern.
I hereby state that the said ancestral property stands in the name of my Late Father, Aunt and Uncle both my Aunt who was married died issueless and her husband died before her; my Uncle died unmarried only my father leftt his legal heirs i.e. my mother, we four sisters and one brother (who also expired) leaving his wife and childern.
We would like to enter into a Re-development Agreement with a Builder, in this connection we would like your opinion as to whether the said Agreement can be entered into by our Mother only and she can sign the said document or we also have to sign as legal heirs inclusive of our sister-in-law.

You have stated ''I hereby state that the said ancestral property stands in the name of my Late Father, Aunt and Uncle''. Does this mean that the property is owned by your father, aunt and uncle? On what basis do you claim that the property is ancestral in character?
The redevelopment agreement has to be signed by the owners of the property.
1) you have not mentioned whether your father , uncle and aunt left any will or not . if they had left a will apply for probate from HC .
2) all the legal heirs have to sign the agreement .
