Upon death of any family member, legal heirs languish  in courts for year before they are able to obtain Letters of Administration (for immoveable properties) and Succession certificates (for moveable properties). Now without going to the Courts, the legal heirs can obtain Letter of Administration or Succession Certificates, as the case may be through a quick five stage  process facilitated by Succession  Facilitation Units operated by the National Database Registration Authority.

Presently one Facilitation unit is operative in Islamabad dealing with properties/ assets in Islamabad Capital Territory (ICTT) only. Shortly NADRA will establish many more Succession Facilitation Units in other cities of Pakistan.

The applicant have to submit a simple application form after which NADRA will issue public notice in leading local newspapers and on its website. Where no objection are received within fourteen days, the legal heirs whether in Pakistan or abroad (London, Manchester, Birmingham, Bradford, Jeddah, RiyadMedina, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Doha), can visit their local NADRA office in Pakistan or the Pakistan Missions abroad, as the case may be, in the above mentioned cities and conduct biometric verification.

Once verification of the legal heirs is complete through bio-metrics, Succession Certificates or Letter of Administration will be issued in Applicants favor. Apart from the above mentioned cities the government at the earliest is creating bio-metric verification center in many other cities of the world.

Procedure for applying Letter of Administration/Succession Certificate is as follows.

 

Step 1:

Application Initiation: The applicant will provide his /her National Identity Number, deceased persons death certificate and National Identity number. Along with the application the applicant shall submit the letter of authorization form all the legal heirs to file application on their behalf.
