Answer

(Fatwa: 593/593/M=1432)

If the said flat was the property of deceased father, then both the brothers and sister shall have their shares in it. The brothers are wrong who said to their sisters that they had no right. And, if the house was on rent and was not the property of the deceased father, then no one amongst the brothers and sister will have any share in it.
