Legal heirship - birth certificate.. CiteLegal

rsgk75 Started The Discussion:


If a person dies with out writing a will leaving 2 major kids & a wife , what will be the normal procedure for obtaining legal ownership .

Does the birth certificate of children is a valid alternative for the same . Do the wife of the said person require any other docs to obtain the legal heir ship

The land was handed over to a builder & all formalities were completed & the allocated no of flats & shop spaces were registered to the dead person' name before the demise

Please also advice whether wife & kids Have equal share??

If so what will be the legal procedure for transfering these to any one's name

You not informed the community to which the person demised belonged. As for Hindus: Hindu Succession Act, 1956 will be applicable and for muslims personal Laws (Shariat) will be applicable in matters relating to succession and inheritance of property.
