Dear Sir / Madam,

There are two alternatives for you :

a) Get the property registered first in the name of your mother in whom it vests, by completing the prevailing registration formalities as prescribed by the Tahsildar / District Registrar and submitting your father's Death Certificate thereto before selling it or;

b) Applying to the Metropolitan Magistrate Court for a Succession Certificate (which is issued by the concerned Court within three months) of all the legal heirs, so that the property is first transferred in the name of your mother in whom it vests, before selling it.
