I need opinion on the current status of our property rights.
Here is the scenario;
My father had 32 acres of land and one one house. And he has 1 son(myself) and 5 sisters.
When he was alive, he decided to sell half of the land( 16 acres) and distrubute the money among all six.
When he sold half of our land he he distrubuted the money based on his wish. And transferred the name of remaining 16 acres of land to my name.
He had distubuted the money via cheque and went to a lawyer and got the decree done. Assuming that is the final process of getting rid of everybody's right except mine.
My father expired on 1997 and mother expired on 2003.
But now all my sisters are harassing me to give the share in the remaining 16 acres of land.
I am not sure about the new law HSA passed in 2004 is applicable to us, since our property division was done prior to this rule came in picture.
If that is the case, property division done by my father is invalid?
The decree done does not hold any value?
I am 65 years old now. And I dont want to lose my property again for the second time.
Please share your valuable suggestion.
