  93. I have two questions:

    First, I belong to Pondicherry. Whether the procedure for obtaining heir certificate is same in both Tamil Nadu and Pondicherry!

    Second, My mother died in 2013. She is second wife of my father. I am first son of my mother and I have one younger brother!
    So totally we are 2 (two) son’s for my mother and I have 3 (three) step elder brothers who born for my fathers first wife! So now my doubt is who has the proper rights to obtain my mothers properties? Either my father or myself or my younger brother! Right now I am working in France! So is it possible to obtain heir certificate either for me or my younger brother or for both of us!

    Thank you in advance!

  94. My mother’s father passed away recently. He was married twice. My mother was born to first wife,the second wife had a boy ,but both of them ie second wife and her son passed away very long back,in the 1960. We don’t have any death certificate for that. My grandfather wrote a will before he died, he gave all of his properties to me. I have two sisters. He stated no body having any rights on his property including my mother except me. My mother can look after him ,but she don’t have any rights to sell,or donate to some one.
    Now I want to change the properties to my name…
    1. Do i need a legal heir certificate for that?
    2. All the properties are in my great grandfathers name with in their family ,the separated the properties with their brothers…
    so,how can I change the name?
    3.I went to VAO office to get the legal heir certificate for my mother and me. He told my grandfather married twice,so I should get the legal heir certificate from the court only. He will not be authorized to issue a certificate for this case. How can I apply to the court?

Because of this my step sister is unable to register the settlement deed in registration office as the registrar is objecting it. I have birth certificate of my step sister mentioning father’s name.

Please advise how to include stepsister name in the legal heirship certificate so as to complete the registration process,

  96. Hi Friends,

    I am writing this to seek your valuable help in getting the information related to obtaining Legal Heir certificate for my cousin who died in London.Our side lawyer who is running the compensation claim case is asking for Legal Heir certificate for the deceased person issued by the District Collector. He claims the one issued by Tahsildar is not enough to submit before the overseas court.

    I read from some of the article in the web that the same certificate can be issued by Tahsildar/Sub-collector/Collector. Is this correct when it comes to Tamil Nadu? Please advice me the process for getting the Legal certificate from District Collector.

    Much awaiting for your guidance in this regards.

    Thank you so much

    1. Based on the report of the Village Administrative Officer and Revenue Inspector and after due enquiry, this certificate is issued by the Tahsildar mentioning the names of all legal heirs of the deceased.

  97. What is the procedure and documents required for the only major daughter to apply legal heir certificate after the death of her father. Father and mother of the girl got divorced at least six years ago. Major daughter is living with mother since divorce.

    1. Required Documents :
      ** Death certificate
      ** Identity Card
      ** Ration card
      ** Prescribed application form

    We are residing and working in Mumbai. Our father having a property in Tambaram taluk . We try to acquire the legal heir certificate at Thane. But the Thasildar refused to give the legal heir certificate at Thane and advised me to get it from Tamilnadu. Since we are not having a residence at Chennai the revenue official refused and asked me to give a proof of address in their jurisdiction. Where shall I get the legal heir certificate? If it is delayed it will be occupied by the Anti-social elements.
    I trust that this is the right of the citizen of India and issuing the certificate also the duty of the Executive Magistrate. In such a condition the Thasildar cum Executive Magistrate can rely upon the oral evidence duly filed as a affidavit by the person as well as by the witness is it not?

  99. My grand mother died last year. She had 1 son(MY Father) and 2 daughters.
    We have one house on my grandma’s name registered. In order to change that to my mother’s name we need varisu certificate. Should we include my grand mother’s 2 daughters name? or my father name and my mother name alone is enough?

    Please reply me as soon as possible.

    1. Eligibility :
      Wife or Husband or Son or Daughter or Mother may apply for legal-heirship certificate

    2. Thank you and that’s fine. Do we need to include daughter’s name in that varisu certificate?

    3. Legal Heirs of the deceased should be included in the application form FOR LEGAL HEIRSHIP CERTIFICATE.

    4. But since, other legal heirs (two daughters) didn’t apply for LEGAL HEIR SHIP CERTIFICATE, do we all also need to include their name ? .

      Is it compulsory to include all the legal heirs of deceased (example : deceased wife/husband name, deceased mother and father name, deceased son’s name and deceased daughter’s name). If so, do we need to get signature from all of them(those who are alive) for the applicant to be legal heir?

      And to change the property from the deceased to Single particular heir (here deceased son), other legal heirs approval is needed?

    5. Who are the legal heirs?
