KINDLY NOTE THAT YOU HAVE TO FILE A CIVIL SUIT FOR SUCCESSION CERTIFICATE.BY ENCLOSING THE DEATH CERTIFICATE COPY AND ALL OTHER RELEVENT DOCUMENTS.YOU AND YOUR MOTHER AND OTHER HEIRS CAN CLAIM ALL BANK ACCOUNTS AND FIXED DEPOSITS, AND OTHER INVESTMENTS AND EVEN SERVICE DUES OF YOUR FATHER.
IN CASE ALL HEIRS AGREE FOR ADDING THEIR NAME ON HOUSE AND OTHER PROPERTY LEFT BY YOUR FATHER, THEN EVEN A MUTUAL FAMILY UNDERSTANDING WRITTEN ON A STAMP PAPER OF RS.100/ WITH DETAILS OF PROPERTY AND HOW TO SHARE THE SAME ,WITH SIGNATURES OF ALL HEIRS AND DULY SIGNED BY WITNESSES, IS ALSO PERFECTLY LEGAL AND YOU CAN SAVE STAMP AND OTHER LEGAL EXPENSES. IN CASE YOU NEED ANY FURTHER HELP KINDLY SEND DETAILA OR WRITE OR CALL. THANKS.
