Legal Issues on property sold without a family member who has been absconding for past 30 years

  • 2 Answers

Can a person ask for share in property who is deserted since 30 years as a family consisting of five brothers out of which one has left home 30 years back and never returned. Now an ancestral property was sold without the absconded brother. Kindly suggest me if any legal issues will arrive now? Thank you

Any member who has disappeared for long time nust be declared dead by the competent Court. If not done so, and he is not survived by any heirs, then he can surface and demand his share. No escape. But this litigation will stretch too long for him.

Not likely , as there is a limitation of time is applicable here too; after 30  yrs absconding he will be treated dead like in IPC if a spose is not traceable for seven yrs or more he is t be treated as dead.
