Which house do you want to distribute? Whether is it about the same rented house in which your maternal aunts and uncles are living for years? Or is there any other ancestral house which is owned by them? If you are enquiring about the rented house then how can they sell it when it belongs to someone else? Also, which house was repaired and renovated by your maternal aunt, is it the same rented house or any other one? Please, clarify these points then you will be given a complete answer.
