Dear Sir / Madam,

1. Since the shop is in the name of your mother and she has signed the Gift Deed, you should first take up the matter of your share with your mother.

2. You should first discuss it out with your mother.

3. Since the Gift Deed has been done prior to the date of the Partition Deed, it supercedes the Partition Deed.

4. Yes.

5. The title of a property can be transferred to another person vide a stamped and registered Gift Deed.
