if a will does not nominate an executor, the beneficiaries of the deceased will have to file an application for Letter of Administration. This Letter of Administration would grant the same administrative rights to the beneficiaries that an executor would have enjoyed. However, If a person dies intestate, then an applicant seeking administrative rights pertaining to the deceased estate files for Letter of Administration.
Hence, when a person dies intestate/ or doesn't nominate an executor under the will, it is then, the Letter of Administration acts as a facilitating document. Letter of Administration is granted to the beneficiaries after they apply to a Court of law having competent jurisdiction. Letter of Administration entitles the administrator to all rights belonging to the intestate as effectually as if the administration had been granted at the moment after his death.
Probate, Letter of Administration and Succession Certificate are legal documents through which rights pertaining to the estate of the deceased are granted. Probate and Letter of Administration are the primary documents through which administrative rights pertaining to the estate of the deceased are validated.
Therefore it is essential that you obtain a letter of administration from a court competent in order to get the property revenue records transferred to the names of the legal heirs as mentioned in the letter of administration.
The notarised letter of administration is not valid in law, hence it is unreliable, therefore the Tehsildar may not entertain your request in this regard on the basis of the notarised letter of administration.
