The legal heir of the deceased can claim of legal right, title, possession of property of a deceased plaintiff by virtue of Section 10 of Hindu Succession Act( assuming  the party is Hindu). 

Further with respect to property matter to claim right as a tenancy the legal heir would be required to furnish a legal heir certificate or an affidavit on oath stating that the members are legal heirs of deceased will also suffice court purpose.
