The properties of a Hindu male who dies intestate (without will) belongs to his sons, daughters, widow, and mother in equal shares, as well as the stated heirs of predeceased sons or daughters.
There are two methods to inherit one's property:
Testamentary Succession- The testator is the person who makes the will, and the legatee is the person in whose benefit the will is formed.
Intestate Succession- If a person dies without leaving a will, his estate is divided among his heirs according to the laws of intestate succession.
Heir- A person who is supposed to inherit the estate of an ancestor who died without leaving a will. It is important to identify a legal heir because they are the ultimate successors.
In his grandfather's ancestral property, the son enjoys the same rights as his father. Furthermore, if the father owns a self-acquired or separate property and dies intestate, the son who is a Class I heir will have the same succession rights as his live mother, sister, grandmother, and brother.

First Step: Submit an application for a Legal Heir Certificate to the District Tehsildar Officer through the District Court with jurisdiction in the region.
Second Step: The District Authority issues a certificate of legal heirship to the concerned person based on the report of the Village Administrative Officer as well as the Revenue Inspector of the District and after the obligatory inquiry. The certificate lists the names of all the deceased person's legitimate heirs. The documents required to get a legal heir certificate are:
• Name of the deceased person
