When a person dies leaving an estate without a will, any person who are connected with him, either by marriage or by consanguinity, are entitled to obtain letters of
administration by Court authorizing him to take control of and dispose of the estate of deceased person. The power of attorney for obtaining letters of administration is a legal
document where a legal heir of deceased intestate authorizes another person to obtain the letter of administration by Court and to take possession of such property on his
behalf. When a person dies leaving an estate, it is requisite to appoint a person for executing and disposing of the case. There may be circumstances when you are unable to
obtain the letter of administration from Court personally, through this document you can appoint an attorney to apply for and obtain letters of administration in respect of the
Estate, to take possession of all the properties moveable and immovable left by the estate, to sign, declare and file petition in the court and to sign and file all other documents
and papers. This will ensure that deceased property is disposed of properly.
The Power of Attorney is to be executed on a non-judicial stamp paper of the requisite value as per the stamp duty prevelant in the respective state, sealed and signed by all the partners
and manager of firm. It is necessary to register this Power of attorney before sub- registrar.
You may use it if you are widow or husband of deceased wife or creditor of deceased or you are anyway connected to deceased estate who is entitled to letter of administration and is unable
to obtain it personally from the Court.
