This is urgent and would like some expert legal advice from any renowed or experienced lawyer who might be from goa.

We are 3 daughters (I being the 3rd daughter) and 1 younger brother.

Our parental house was rebuilt from kachha to pucca. The expenses were put in 70% by me and 30% by my brother. The surrounding property was purchased legally from the actual owners recently and was registered under my parents name (100% finance being put in by me after marriage)

Now the issue is that neither my parents are ready to give me my share in the property nor my brother is ready to return my money. nor do they want to talk about it in good terms.

My parents have refused my share stating that they will not give any share to any daughter because we are married and the house and property belongs to my brother.

As of now all I asked them was to return the money I have put in building the house and my share of the property (excluding the house) after dividing the amount put in to purchase the plot.

Since my parents have not bought the property with their money are my sisters eligible for the share just coz its under my parents name? can my parents refuse to give me my share because I am married even though I have financed for it?

I want this matter settled in good terms as much as it might be possible. If no option is left then what legal steps should I follow?

As per your statement you are four brothers and sisters. 3 sisters and 1 brother. Your money 75% and your brother money 25% is involved in purchasing the property X.
Earlier also your parents have some other property adjacent to the new property. If my statement is correct and if you have proof for making the 75% money paid by you and 25% by your brother, then you can claim the same through the court from your parents.
In addition your parents property (mentioned by you), if the same is purchased by your parents, then they can deny the share to you or to anyone. They have the right to even donate to anyone or any trust or orphanage. But if the property was inherited your ancestors by your parents, then they cannot dispose or handover to others without your consent.
Hope you got some idea about this and you can decide about your right on the property.

hi,

thanks for the reply.

actually it is just 1 property on which we had our mundkarial house. this house was a kacha house and the plot along with the kacha house was purchased from the actual owners . I put in the entire amount for the purchase of the plot with the house within it. my parents have not put in a single paisa for the purchase or the renovation. however while registering the plot it was registered in my parents name. and the house within the plot as I mentioned earlier was rebuilt or renovated my me and my brother.(only the house renovation has 30% finance from my brother)

as far as i am aware in Goa, the daughters have an equal share in the parents property , irrespective of whether the same was purchased by the parents or whether it was inherited by them. and if at all the parents want to transfer their property to their son/sons then they can only part 50% of it and the rest 50% has to be divided amount X number of daughters they might have.

but in my case, I have paid the entire purchase price and fees etc. and the house within the property also has 70% of my finance. but the cache is that the property is registered in my parents name. thats why I am confused as to whether my sisters can claim a share in the property and if my parents can refuse my claim....
