New Delhi [India], Nov. 29 (ANI): The Delhi High Court on Tuesday said that a son, irrespective of his marital status, has no legal right to live in the self-acquired house of his parents and can reside there only at their mercy.

The court said parents can allow their son to live in the house as long as relations are cordial and that does not mean that they have to bear his burden throughout his life.

The court passed this order while dismissing an appeal by a man and his wife challenging the order of a trial court which had passed a decree in favour of his parents, who had filed a suit seeking a direction to their son and daughter-in-law to vacate the floors in their possession.

Justice Pratibha Rani stated that the son and his wife were unable to prove that they were the co-owners of the property, while his parents have established their contention on the basis of documentary evidence, during the order

Actually the son and the daughter in law claimed that they were the co-owners of the property as they had contributed towards its purchase and construction, but high court dismissed their claim due to lack of documentary evidence(ANI)
