hi. 60% of indian cinema and serials are based on property issues. in daily or normal life, i don't see people making much issue regarding the iheritance of father's property. i might be wrong. will it bother you if your father decides to donate his assets(property,cash,etc) to a stranger or a trust ? or will you support his will? do you think its your right to inherit fathers assest?

No, I wouldn't be mad. I don't expect to get anything from him anyway. LOL An inheritance for the most part should probably go to the kids (and if there aren't any kids then some other blood relative), though it doesn't mean that it has to. It kind of sucks, but that's the way it goes sometimes. Happy mylotting!

Mad or angry is not the perfect term that would best describe how I would feel when that happens. I would be hurt of course. Probably dismayed. Of course I expect my parents to trust me with whatever they have worked for for years. But then again if we come to think of it, we really don't have a right to claim what is not ours. My father must have this benevolent goal when he started working. Probably it was his goal to work hard and earn a lot to be able to extend a helping hand to other people. It's his choice because he worked for it. If we want something, then we should also work for it and in the end it is still our choice whether we would hand it to our children or give it to someone else.

When I was younger, my parents signed over the house and property to my older sister. Of course until I looked up the records I didn't know. She basically took over the morgage before my parents became ill enough to where they could no longer handle it. I'm not mad or upset about it though because, while i don't understand why things ended up the way they did, it was my father's will.

I might be offended if my father had assigned all of his property to strangers instead of me, his child. Yet I would also want to make sure his last wishes were seen through, because I know in my heart, that would make him happy. I don't really believe it is my right though, to inheret my father's or mother's assets, because I believe it is a privilige that has to be earned. Yet if I had a close relationship with my father, I might feel different, for it would be hard to understand why he would give his assets away to strangers and not me. Yet maybe if I had a well provided life by my father, I could see where he might think his chidlren would understand in helping others live just as well with his assets or belongings. I would just try to respoect the wishes of my father, no matter if I got his property or not, because it is not up to me.

well.. those happen usually in cinemas only i guess... you don't usually take up a quarrel against your dad... something like that would happen when you may get into your middle age, but by then you would have acquired most of the property.. :) so don't worry and enjoy mylotting..

In the normal course the assets are given to the spouse who in turn is expected to give them to her children. Or he can divide them between his spouse and the children if he so desires. Deciding to donate the assets would seem a bit abnormal and there would be some history for the man to take such a decision. If everything is normal I would certainly be upset about this decision.

Oh my gosh!If ever my father will donate all his asset to a stranger then I think I will collapse.How could such a thing happen when I am the one who is entitled to have it being his own flesh and blood.So if ever that will happen somehow, I'm pretty sure that there is a big mistake going on and I in my way would find out how it came to be.But if that stranger will turn out to be my future fiance then that wil all be fine(smiles).

There are few families where there will be no good relation with father and son.And moreover we do not have any right on a fathers property.If he feels that we are good in his mind only then because of love and curiosity he may give that otherwise it is his wish.If you think broadly you have to earn on which you have command not on his. I came across many family issues of this type. A different type of example - a son holds an executive position in a government organization and he has constructed a house of his own. But ,poor father has been allotted a small portion in this house for which he has to pay rent to his son every month. I was just shocked to hear this.......! What do you say about this....Please share your comments.

of course i will be very mad if i find out that my father will give big part to trust or charity then only small for me. besides even if he will give me all his inheritance i will still going to share some to charity but it really depends to me already. whats the use of having kids if he didnt appreciate them unless we o a lot of bad things that change his mind.

i wont be mad but i will be just upset when he donates all his assets to a stranger when he and me are having a good relationship . i dont actually expect any assets from my father but i dont like doing such a thing . if he has done something to my family or just even to my father he may give him some percentage of assets . i will be upset for sure if he gives all the assets to stranger

Well, I'll probably be very disappointed at first, then I'll get suspicious and maybe a little paranoid but of course, I'll have to respect his decision still. I will probably investigate on the matter but eventually just get over it. It will be hard though.

First Thing I will go mad but I do not see any reason as to why my father will do this. I am not a bad son at all so he will not donate his money to a stranger. I would love to donate the money to needy people and if my father does that its a great feeling for me but not everything :)
