Son has no right to reside in parent's house: Delhi HC
30 November 2016 Current Affairs: The Delhi High Court held the son, irrespective of his marital status has no legal right to live in his parent’s house. Parent’s house means, the house self-acquired by the father/mother.

In its judgement, the court said the son can reside in there only at his parent's mercy up to the time the parents allow.

The judgment was pronounced Justice Pratibha Rani while dismissing an appeal by a man and his wife challenging the order of a trial court. The trial court asked the couple to vacant the first floor of his parent’s property in west Delhi.

The order 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.

Highlights of the verdict : It held that the son and his wife were allowed to stay at their parent’s home when their relations were cordial and it doesn’t mean that they have to bear his burden throughout their life.

It held that in the case where the house is self-acquired, the son, married or unmarried, has no legal right to live there.
