My husband passed away some years ago and left no will. There are 2 cars under his name and a condo which is 50/50 his and mine. My immediate worry is how to continue renewing the road tax as it will be blocked soon. I understand that I have to go to Small Estates Distribution office if all movable/immovable assets are not more than RM2 million. Does it mean that everything MUST be sold and then distributed to beneficiaries? I want to keep the condo for my children and have no plans to sell it, more so when I found out that a portion will go to his parents/siblings. Do I have other options?

@ mayling

For motor vehicles, a friend told me.
Go get a L.A. (Letter of Administration) and transfer the motor vehicle. How it works, go ask Jabatan Pengangkutan Jalan (JPJ).
Alternatively, just renew the road tax by the renewal of old insurance policy, but still transfer the the name as soon as possible and get new insurance under new owner's name.

For the house,
If it is a fully paid-up property, just continue to live in it.
Nobody can do anything about it as you have 50% share.
You write a will to the leave the 50% share to your children.

Get your insurance agent to use MyEG to renew the road taxes.
By using this service, there is no need to show the registration card and no need for the owner of the vehicles to be present.

Tnks Jeff and vkpc for yr feedback.  It was reported recently that another document (VOC?) will replace the car reg. card so I don't know whether I'll be stuck with the same problem with the road tax.
