My mother deceased recently. Father has expired long ago. My mother has left behind property worth Rs.60.00 lakhs.  It is herself acquired property. She has not made any will. We are four brothers and two sisters in all.  One of the brother and sister died subsequent to the death of the mother.  The deceased brother and sister have one son each. Since all are settled independently, we want to sell the property.  Please guide us who should join the execution of the sale deed?

Your father had predeceased your mother.  One sister and one brother have died subsequent to your mother.  All the children of your mother, four sons and two daughters have equal share in the property of your mother.  Each is entitled to 1/6th of the share.  Since one brother and one sister have also expired, their share will pass on to their legal heirs.
All the legal heirs, the surviving three brothers, one sister, legal heirs of deceased brother and sister should join in the execution and admission of sale deed.

Q:- I am resident of Bangalore and I have few questions on real estate in Bangalore. I heard there is a GO passed by Karnataka government, banning all the registrations process by CMC. Is this GO applicable only in the city of Bangalore or whole of Karnataka? Has this been lifted or still in place? Do I have to pay VAT and Service Tax if I book apartment from a builder? The apartment builder told me that there will be a construction agreement and a land agreement. Since, the construction agreement more is like a service rendered by builder to the buyer, can I just buy Service tax on the construction cost?
