procedure to get succession certificate


Hello, 

My friend's mother had fixed deposite account with Bank and in joint name with her mother. Now both are expired and there is no nominee registered. So bank asked my friend to take Succession certificate from court and claim for this fixed deposit account. So want to know from where to get application form for Succession Certificate and how to procceed? Does he need to hire a lawyer or he can apply himself as bank person told him to contact lawyer to get succession certificate.

 

Thanks

Yes, succession certificate needs to be obtained through the Civil Court.

Heavy amount or less amount.if less amount why they insist him to goto courtand to obtain succession certificate .they can take indemnity guarantee bond with g tree and other necessary documents to release amount. If they know them personally they can transfer the amount to him .if every one goes to court for silly reasons to court it will be full of silly cases . when I was bank advocate I was not encouraging them to approach court for silly reasons to harass which simply increases workload for every one.result nil.

Amont would be higher, because they are saying him they need to get approval from legal team before releasing amount. Can he directly go to court and apply for succession certificate?

Going to court for a succession certificate is not like going to court with a dispute. There is a set procedure for applying for succession certificate and it has to be followed.
