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.
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.
