HEIRS FIGHTING FOR RENT MONEY REGARDING THE INHERITANCE!

 

The case involves properties that have been listed as the inheritance of the late Hj Borhan through an application for letters of administration in the High Court. Azim is the son of Hj Borhan. Malek is the heir of the deceased named Ali, and Ali is the son of Hj Borhan. The properties of the late Hj Borhan have been declared by the Syariah Appeal Court (MRS) to be divided among the heirs by faraid. Before the MRS decision was issued, Malek and other heirs had rented out 4 shophouse units on the 4 properties involved. The rent has been taken. Azim made a claim against Malek regarding the rental payments that had been received from the 4 properties.

RENTAL CLAIM APPLICATION REJECTED BY THE COURT!

 

The High Court in this case ruled that the letters of administration order that had listed the properties left by Hj Borhan did not include the rental money that had been obtained by Malek and other heirs. This letter of administration order cannot be used to give power to Azim to include the rental amount that has been previously collected from the Order as part of the late Hj Borhan’s inheritance. The Court is of the view that this Court does not have the jurisdiction to determine that the rent that has been collected is part of the inheritance that needs to be distributed according to faraid. The court does not need to determine at this stage whether Azim has proven that the amount of money collected is the amount actually collected by Malek. Azim’s application was rejected.
