My dad passed away a week ago with no living will. No life insurance and I'm his oldest child. He has one other daughter. Do I have to wait on a death certificate to get any of his belongings out of his house.

Please accept my condolences on the loss of your father.
Yes, you need to follow the law and get permission from the Surrogate's Court before taking possession of your dad's personal property.
Once again, please accept my condolences on the loss of your father.
