Class II heirs can claim their rights only if there’s no Class I heir
Under the Hindu Succession Act 1956, legal heirs are categorised into two classes—Class I and Class II heirs
The first right on wealth is of Class I heirs and only if there is no one available in Class I, then relations under Class II can claim their rights
My father’s sister recently died intestate. She was unmarried and used to live alone in her self-constructed house. My aunt had two sisters and one brother (my father) but all of them died before her. Except her, everyone has two children each. There is no dispute to the property and her belongings but we want to know who will the property, gold, FDs, etc. legally belong to and in what proportion?
