Dadar, Mumbai, Maharashtra
In the year 2010, on 16/12/2010, my late sister and I applied for transfer of the tenantment of MHADA flat in our joint name as successor of our late mother and all the formalities as required by MHADA –application form with lists of all legal heirs of late mother’s, their respective status- as dead or alive , family photos, indemnity bonds, affidavits , ads in news papers submitted to MHADA and on the basis of that MHADA issued letter transfer the said tenantment in our joint names, we paid transfer fees of Rs 2885.00. Since 2010 till date we pay our monthly rent in joint names.
Now my sister pass away and this time I wanted flat to transfer to my sole name, deleting my sisters name from record as my sister was unmarried and no hiers and completed transfer of tenantment from and submitted online application. Again I was asked to submit various documents and for over one month go around in circles. Finally now MHADA officer insist that I need to get succession certificate.
I do not understand why he wants this because I am late sisters brother and not her spouse or child and since the succession issue from our mother was settled by MHADA in 2010 and we both jointly and equally holds right to the above tenantment and after her death as per death certificate and other documents the tenantment should be transferred to my name.
