Modification of mutation rules in case of Death: Modification of Rules of Municipal Corporation of Delhi in cases of mutation of property in case of death. The Municipal Corporation of Delhi, Property Tax Department, has issued instructions vide No. TAX/HQ/2009/GPP dated August 11, 2010, making it compulsory for beneficiaries/ legal heirs of deceased owners of property to obtain Probate Order/ Succession Certificate in their favour from a competent Court in case of unregistered Will or no Will at all.

Modification of mutation rules in case of Death: It may be emphasized here that the costs obtaining Probate/Succession Certificate from Court is 3 – 4% of the cost of the property of the deceased person besides the time for which the matter carries on before the Court and personal appearances before the Court till the Probate/ Succession Certificate is issued. Thus, it would be advisable that every property owner must write his/her Will and have the same duly Registered as well, so that it would save harassment and inconvenience to the family or beneficiaries.

In case you have already written a Will, kindly have the same duly Registered as well, for the benefit of the beneficiary under the Will.

In view of the above, it is better to make a will in the name of beneficiaries and register it with the Registrar of your area. If the will is registered, much of the botheration of legal heir is saved in gettting the mutation of the property made in their favour.
