Letter of Administration to sell off property

I wish to inquire about the procedure for applying a Letter of Administration (LA) for distribution of a small estate.

The property, I believe is under a Master Title, and there are two joint owners under my husband and his mother's names respectively.

Before the transfer of the strata title, his mother had passed away. The only surviving family members are her son (my husband) and daughter.

The daughter has migrated to the US ten years ago and they have not been in contact since.

What is the procedure to follow in such circumstances? Can my husband still apply for LA to sell off the property even though he cannot locate the other beneficiary (his sister)?

Thank you.

Applying for LA is not to sell off anything.
Applying for LA is to get a confirmation of who are the new owners of the deceased's assets.
So after the LA is obtained, it just confirms that his sister also owns a percentage of the house.
