My sisters husband died intestate. He has investments in UTI units and others and also a piece of land in Tamil Nadu. There is only One legal heir who is resident in Mumbai. My question is 1. Whether legal heir certificate will be valid for transfer and registration of land and other assets in the name of the legal heir.? 2. What is the law in Tamil Nadu with respect to registration of land by letter of administration or legal heirship holder? 3. How much is stamp duty application for obtaning legalheirship certificate and succession certificate?

Apply for a succession certificate / letter of administration for movable properties and obtain "surviving member certificate" from area SDM/ Tehsildar. Local laws apply to the subject, therefore, seek professional services of a local prudent lawyer.
