    I have 50% partnership ownership flat in Santacruz with my brother since 1978. He passed away in 2004. I just found that 2008 the flat has been transfer to my sister in law(Bhabhi) as sole owner and removed my name from ownership to 2nd Nominee with my nephew as 1st nominee. I never gave authorization letter or ask my co-operative society secretary or chairman to remove my name as 50% ownership. Govt old custom house under sec II my name is still listed as property owner.
    My question is how can a secretary or chairman remove my name as owner and put in place of nominee. Can you advise me my next step to resolve this situation.
