Dear Members and Pupils of the Selangor Bar,

It has come to the attention of the Conveyancing Practice subcommittee of the Selangor Bar that Pejabat Tanah Daerah Hulu Langat issued a notice stating that effective from 01.06.2022 the following documents are required to be furnished for presentation of the “Application for Registration as Representative” of the estate of the Deceased (under Form 51(O) of Selangor Land Rules 2003) for registration involving Grant of Letters of Administration or Grant of Probate:

(i) A copy of the Identity Card of the Administrator(s);
(ii)A copy of Jabatan Pendaftaran Negara (“JPN”) status search on the individual (whether dead or alive) (mandatory);
(iii) Form 51(O)
(iv) a copy of Death Certificate

The Conveyancing Practice Sub-Committee is aware of the difficulties arising from the requirement to produce the mandatory status search results from JPN and have engaged with the Pejabat Tanah Daerah Hulu Langat on this issue. The Sub- Committee is pleased to to update members that the said requirement to furnish a copy of the JPN Search on the status of the individual (whether deceased or alive) has been withdrawn with immediate effect.

Members please be guided accordingly.

Thank you.
