My mother ownes 2 plots (1/2 share in each plot) in belgaum city ,karnataka state since 1952.she died in 2002.we came to about it in 2005 itself.no names of legal heirs were are entered. We are 2 sons as her legal heirs.we came to know that some illegal construction is done on the plot by encroachment.they are poor people.
Now we want to enter our name on the said properies.we were advised thta stamp duty @5% of the market value is to be paid in court to claim succession.we are residing in maharashtra state.
Let us know whether stamp duty is attracted?at what rate?
As we came to know about the propery only after 2005,is our right invalidated due to lapse of time?
Whta is the procedure now?
Pl guide us.as the market value of the properies runs in to lakhs,there are intruders now.
Hindu succession act applies to us.
