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

- by Madhavi, Davanagere

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

You have informed that you have 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.
