A. Madam for succession certificate the maximum court fee/stamp duty is Rs 50,000/- apart from official charges, filing charges and lawyers professional fees. There's no bargain on court fees/stamp duty, official charges and filing charges. However, considering your financial situation, lawyers might consider giving you a flexible fee payment structure. Its better you put your request to Vidhikarya and someone from this Vidhikarya will definitely gives you a flexible payment structure.

instead of spending nearly one lakh on succession certificate, can it be less payable if my son and married daughter gives me a registered release deed in favour of me (mother for them) and then using those release deeds can i transfer the property of my expired mother-in-law to my name transfer of property as my mother-in-law died without leaving a will. Can registered release deeds from my son and daughter solve the issue economically ? please advice

Succession Certificate is a must to establish your legal heir status. Gift deed or Relinquishment deed will come into effect once you and surviving heir can establish the legal right. And this is only possible by getting Succession Certificate.

instead of getting court succession certificate, is it economical to get release deeds from my son and married daughter to grant release deeds in favour of my name and then using those release deeds can i transfer the property in my name and then sell the house of my expired mother-in-law, as my husband died before the death of my mother-in-law ? can release deeds and name transfer in my name solve the issue soon instead of succession certificate for our immovable property house of my expired mother-in-law ?

A. Since you are not a blood relative of your mother-om-law you may not be able to get teh title changed by just her death certificate. file a suit in civil court for issuance of succession certificate.

A. You are legal heirs of that property. And succession certificate must required for mutation of property on your name You need to file a suit under hindu succession act claiming all the share . Once you become absolute owner then you can sale that property.

ok sir.. after getting succession certificate in my name and my children name, is it required to get power of attorney in my name to sell the property of my expired mother-in-law?

Reply

A. If your husband died after death of mother ,in that case, according to law of inheritance, the property shall devolve upon you ,your son and your daughter. Hence, you should get steps to get the mutation done in the name of all three legal heirs and thereafter the property can be sold by all of you jointly.

Since you all are class one legal heirs ,hence, no need to get succession certificate .Only you have to take steps for mutation in the name of all legal heirs. Court fee is negligible and vary in each state. For mutation you have to take professional's help.

Please read carefully . After death of your mother in law all right , title and interest devolves upon Your son and daughter , who are only surviving legal heir. Hence ,only they can take steps for mutation of the property and thereafter the property can be sold jointly by them.you are not entitled to take any steps in this regard.
