Query on undivided property related to death of unmarried maternal uncle

Situation : I have 4 maternal uncles and 4 maternal aunts , so altogether my father are total : 5 brothers and 4 sisters. I have a query regarding a Hindu undivided property(our house where all the families of my 4 maternal uncles and my father's family are currently residing and the property tax is being paid equally by 5 families as the property tax bill is sent in name of all my maternal uncles and my father). Recently one of my maternal uncle died and he was unmarried. Also , my father died few years ago , so currently 3 maternal uncles are alive. Also , all my 4 maternal aunts are married and currently alive and living in own houses. In such a case , when the property of my maternal uncle , who was unmarried , will be divided , will I be eligible for a share , being the son of my father who is no more alive ?
