We are two brothers and one sister, and we follow Hinduism. In 1970, my father built a house on a plot which was in my mother’s name, although it was bought with my father’s money. My father expired in 1990. In 2012, my brother and I demolished the house and built a new house with our own money. After construction, my mother gifted the house to both of us equally. We requested our sister to take one floor, but she denied verbally as she is well off. In the future, can my sister or her children legally ask for a share in the house?
