It is difficult to answer this question without seeing the documents. If the property is still in your father's name (not as your guardian) your brothers will also have the rights in the property.

Dear Sir / Madam,

YES. You are the sole owner of the property since the title of the property stands in your name since the time you were a minor. Sons of your chacha and your own brothers do not have any legal right over the property.
