Dear Madam,

Unless your mother has specifically left behind a Will making you as the sole beneficiary of her property, on the demise of your mother, the title of her property vests in your father.

1. It is possible and correct. Your father has the sole right and privilege to deal with your mother's self acquired property in the manner he best deems fit.

2. You are the legal heir.

3. No prior partition of the land is necessary.

4. Yes, your father has selling rights of the property.
