1) apply for mutation of property in your mother name 

2) enclose father death certificate 

3) gift deed or relinquishment deed by other legal heirs 

4) if no objections are received property would be mutated in mother name 

5) your mother can also apply for letters of administration from court 

6) consent affidavit can be executed by other legal heirs to relinquish their interest in father property 

7) court would in case no ob case is received from any legal heir issue letters of administration in your mother name

Create a gift deed or relinquishment deed infavour of your mother withregard to your father’s property.An HUF is a separate entity that can be created by members of a family, wherein the members are lineal ascendants or descendants.A single person cannot create an HUF. Usually the senior-most member of the family is considered the karta, the person who manages the affairs of the HUF.Once a person gets married, an HUF is automatically created. But to be recorded by tax authorities, it needs to have an income-generating asset, which can only come as a gift from a relative or through a Will for all members of the HUF. Once it has such an asset, the HUF needs to be registered in a particular name and other formalities such as opening a bank account and acquiring a Permanent Account Number (PAN) have to be done.an HUF cannot be broken into parts; all members have to agree to dissolve an HUF

1. For conveying the title of the property of your father who demised intestate, you shall have to first collect the legal heir certificate and then all the legal heirs should register a Relinquishment Deed in favour of your mother relinquishing their shares of their father's property in favour of their mother.

2. Get a resolution signed by all other family members of the said HUF to accept you as the Karta of your father's HUF. You shall have to submit copy of the said resolution to all concerned like .Tax department to substitute your name in place of your father as the Karta of the HUF.

3. Your HUF can buy any property jointly with any other HUF or individual including your mother.

4. You can be a member as well as Karta of both the HUFs.

1.  If your father died intestate then his properties shall devolve equally on all his legal heirs. 
All the legal heirs can jointly execute a registered release deed relinquishing their rights  in favor of your mother after which the properties can be mutated in her name and all the records can be transferred to her name.

2.  The oldest son shall become Karta of the HUF in the event of death of the father/Karta. The formalities like new PAN card shall be obtained 


3. As a Karta you can buy new properties under HUF, but there is no question of partnership with your mother, since she is also one among the member of the HUF she will be automatically entitled to a share in the HUF property. 

4.  You can start your own HUF involving your own family members but it  need be mingled with your father's HUF
