Dear Querist, you have not stated how many siblings you have .

Answer to your Query No. 1. Yes, it can be transferred only if your Society is convinced and satisfied about the legal heirs of your father. If they are agreeable, execute an Affidavit cum Undertaking and Indemnity Bond, issue a public notice and consent affidavit of all other legal heirs.

Answer to Query No. 2, You including all legal heirs will have to apply for a Succession Certificate or Letters of Administration without will, before Civil Judge (Senior Division), Kalyan Court. If market value of your flat is above 12 Lakhs, then Court Fees of Rs 75,000/- plus professional fees of the advocate. The same would vary from advocate to advocate.

Answer to Query No. 3, If your society is ready for transmission than yes, it can be transferred, subject to your mother and other legal heirs, if any will have to give consent for such transfer.

Answer to Query No.4, As your father died intestate, all the legal heirs will get equal rights. It is suggested instead of making will of your mother, get the advantage of the stamp duty waiver on gift deed and transfer the rights through a registered gift deed to you. (As property is in KDMC limits, there will be a 1% Local Tax on market value of the Flat for Gift Deed)
