My paternal grandfather wrote a Will for an equal distribution of a house to his son (my father, who died in 2010) and grandsons (my brothers) without any mention about the granddaughter (me). I have four brothers. The elder one voluntarily parted ways after a mutual agreement in 1990. He is now deceased. Now, the remaining three brothers are claiming equal rights on the property based on my grandfather’s Will. But my assumption is that I’m allowed to claim my share in the property too based on inheritance rights.
