Son has no legal right over parents house, says Delhi HC


Delhi HC in its landmark judgement has ruled that a son has no legal claim over the house owned by his parents, and can “live there only at their mercy”.

 “Where the house is self acquired house of the parents, son whether married or unmarried, has no legal right to live in that house and he can live in that house only at the mercy of his parents upto the time the parents allow”, held Justice Pratibha Rani in a judgement issued on November 24.

The ruling came in the wake of an appeal filed by a man seeking legal backing after a trail court decree ordered him to vacate his parents property.

Nangloi resident, Sachin, the younger of the two sons who had filed written statements denying the sole ownership of the parents over their house, had challenged the lower court’s verdict in High court.

The trial court’s ruling was in the favour of the parents who had sought court’s intervention in what they termed as cruelty by their sons as well their wives.
