    Title: Distribution of property

    Question: My query is that my mamujan passed away three years back leaving behind only his wife as he had no child. My mother is the only surviving sister of my mamu. My mamu had a house built with his own resources (not an ancestral property). How will the same be divided among my mamani and my mother?
