I'm looking to purchase a residential plot whose owner passed away 18 months ago.
As per the legal heirs certificate, the deceased person left behind a widow, three children aged 18+ yrs, 10yrs & 8 yrs.
My query is who should be the authorised seller of this property? Since there are two minors among the legal heirs, what precautions should I take now while registering the property under my name keeping in mind to be safe from any future claims by the children of the deceased?
As per the document writer (Kanakku Pillai), the registrar at the sub-registrar office, will allow the widow to sell the property as she is the natural guardian of her kids. Is that true?
FYI, the seller belongs to Muslim faith and the property location is in Tamil Nadu.
