A person is said to have died intestate when he/she does not leave behind a legal will. Such is the scenario when the requirement of obtaining a Succession Certificate jumps in. The Indian Succession Act, 1925 defines a succession certificate as a certificate issued by a court to the legal heirs of a deceased to establish the authenticity of the heirs and give them the authority to inherit debts, securities and other assets of the deceased.
