To sell my part of parental property
I and my elder brother were gifted a land by my father . i and my elder brother contructed 3 floors on our respective parts(my back and my brother in front ) and a common passage was given in between for our common use .
now i want to sell my back part with usage of common passage to my client, but my elder brother is objecting and denying the sale of common passage to my client.He is not interested in purchasing my part. He says that he will allow the use of common passage to my family members only and not to my client.
Also please tell what r his rights and power for use of common passage.
Has he any right to object this sale of my part as a neighbour.
Is it mandatory to obtain NOC under neighbours rights.
Can he claim or force to purchase my part at a lower amt as compared to my clients amount.
