Sir, I am a Hindu widow and do not have any children. I have inherited property from my father.  Please inform who will succeed to my inherited property.

Section 15 of the Hindu Succession Act deals with the succession of property owned by Hindu female. According to the section, in absence of any legal heirs like husband and children, the property of a Hindu female will devolve on the heirs of her father if the property is owned by her father.

You have informed that you inherited the property from your father and you do not have any legal heirs. So the property will devolve on the legal heirs of your father.


These are all the legal questions answered by Advocate S.Selvakumar in various magazines, in various occasion including realestate reporter monthly.
