The Delhi High Court upheld that irrespective of his marital status, a son does not automatically have the right to live in his parents’ house. Justice Pratibha Rani passed an order saying that the son whether married or unmarried has no legal right to live in the ‘self-acquired’ house of the parents. He can only live at the mercy of his parents up to the time his parents allow, as reported by NDTV.

The decision has been made after rejecting an appeal by a man and his wife objecting the order of a trial court which passed a dictum in favour of his parents who had filed a suit directing their sons and daughters-in-law to vacate the floors in their possession.

The parents who are senior citizens told the court that their sons and daughters-in-law were making their life difficult. They had filed a complaint in the police station and also issued public notices in 2007 and 2012 barring the sons from occupying the property.

The sons and the daughters in law challenged the trial court denying the allegation and claimed that they contributed to the purchase and construction of the property, and, therefore, they were entitled to get a share in it.

Sons along with their wives moved to High Court where their plea was rejected by Justice Rani as they were unable to prove that they were the co-owners of the property whereas their parents had established their contention by evidence.
