Property of my elder brother
My elder brother purchased a land(after getting into job). Do i have a potential claim for share in that land?
Asked in Property Law from Patna, Bihar
No, you do not have any right to claim in the property purchased by your brother from his own resources.
Advocate, New Delhi
1. No. if he is married,
2. Yes, if he dies intestate having no family of his own.
If it is your brother's self-acquired property there is no right for you to claim a share in the property. In case he does not have a family and is not married and if he dies without writing a WILL, then you will have right to claim over the property.
You will be entitled to claim a share in the land purchased by your brother only if he dies without making a will relating to this land.
1) you have no right on your brother self acquired property .
2) if your brother dies intestate and is not married you would be one of the legal heirs
