My grandfather wrote a house on my father's name in his will. But his will is not registered and my father has 7 siblings. In this situation, does my father have to share this house with his siblings? Also is my permission required by my father in order to sell that house?

  • Non-registration of the Will is not fatal and the same is not compulsory in law. However, the Will is required to be proved and a Probate of the same will have to be obtained from a Court of competent jurisdiciton, before the bequest under the Will can be given effect to. If, the Will is not probated, then all siblings will have equal share in the grand fathers property and your permission will be required only to the extent of your share in the house, before the sale of such house.
