legal question Both parents passed away in 2007 and we are 5 children. A bank FD ( opened by my father ) is now maturing at my native place ( Tirukkovilur in TamilNadu) and I need Legal Heir certificate, as FD has no nomination. Father died in Chennai at my home. Question is where to apply for the Legal Heir Certificate ?? Chennai or my native place ??

legal answer from lawyer E00005317The application to be made at Taluk office of his native place tirukkovilur for issue of legal-heirship certificate should contain death certificate in original obtained from the competent authority and court fee stamp of Re.2/- affixed on the application. 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.
