Family Settlement and Property Laws


India has a well-developed system of succession laws that governs a person’s property even after his death. The laws have provisions to allocate the property so that each person then gets his share as per his legal entitlement. The person should be a direct lineal descendant of a common ancestor to inherit the property. The division of the jointly owned property can be divided as per the laws of the state. The property laws are subject to the laws of a state and laws vary from state to state. The family property can also be divided through negotiation.

After recent amendments in the family law, now a daughter also has a share in her father’s property.




It is vital to seek legal advice before signing your last Will and testament, as it is a prominent legal document of your life as well as of your loved ones.
