  1. Dear sir my question is , Im planing to buy a plot in Pakistan….but now im in saudi arabia…. is it possible that it would be register on my name….or i have to go pakistan to complete the process.

    big THANKS in advance for your valuable reply.


    • yes you can purchase the plot without coming to Pakistan. for this you have to appoint any reliable person as your special attorney for purchasing and registering plot on your name.


  2. Dear sir my question is that my uncle is dead he left some property behind his wife dead before him he have only one daughter. She was unmarred still.
    My uncle has one sister she have 3daugher no son.
    Who are the legal heir of the property?


    • in case there is no male legal heir of the deceased
      the some of the property revert back to father of the deceased
      the prospective legal heirs would be
      your uncle’s daughter
      your uncle’s sister (in case of her death her daughters)
      and other your uncles’s father’s brothers would also get some shares
      its just a tentative opinion
