@Lee,

Replaceable on what reason? If original title loss, you can get a new original title but you need to follow certain procedure including police report and statutory declaration. Bring it to the respective land office. They will tell you what to do then.

@Natalie,

Thanks for your advice ...

It is being hold by one of the relative who refuses to return ... can we issue a warrant to ask it back?

How tedious is the statutory declaration procedure?

Thank you very much ...

If your name appears in the grant which means you are the owner of the aforesaid property, just give notice 7 days to return the same to you failing which you will proceed with further action without further notice. Then, lodge a police report. After that bring the docs with you to the Land Office. They will advise you accordingly the next step. For the new grant to be issued its normally take about 6 months and above.

If individual, serve it by hand, get him/ her to sign acknowledgment copy of the notice or you can use A.R registered post.

Thanks again, Natalie.

Can I represent my parent to do all that? Serving the notice by AR registered letter, lodge the police report and issuing the warrant? I still need them to sign on the documents (as property is under parent's name)?

Hi Natalie,

Can you advise me on another legal case?

My dad being the 2nd guarantor to the buyer who bought the truck from him years ago ...

The buyer failed to pay the installments, therefore the bank sued my dad on the default payment and the case dragged for few years. In 1998 the High Court issued a letter saying the case is closed. But recently, we receive notice from the High Court that the case is being bring up again ... What should I do with this?

Should I get the clarification from bank 1st before approaching the High Court, showing them the case was actually being closed? Didn't the bank should have a copy of the letter from High Court too? Then, asking them for the Release letter?

Thank you very very much ...

Hi,

(1) all corres/ docs/ police report must be from ur parents to the 2nd party. sign by them as well. U can only guide/prepare d necessary

(2) "The buyer failed to pay the installments ,therefore the bank sue my dad on the default payment & the case dragged for few years & in 1998 the High Court issueing a letter saying the case is closed . But recently , we receive notice from the High Court that the case is being bring up again ... What should I do with this ?"

- plz be careful. do file searh in court, so u ill know wuts going on now.

Should I get the clarification from bank 1st before approaching the High Court , showing them the case was actually being closed ?

- case "closed" or "bring up again" basiclly is upon bank`s instruction. Not court. court will only proceed if 1 party bring suit vs anor party n will close it once the plaintiff agree to close (by withdrawal summons or  after full trial) .wut u can do, is ask them why did they close at d 1st stage n now bring it up again

- but, i think the best way is to do file search rather than go to d bank coz u can think wuts d nex step should be taken without reveal to d bank that its within ur knowledge that the case has been brought up again

Normally lawyer does this. But you can do it yourself. Bring the suit no. (you can refer to court's letter) to counter (civil or dagang) based on your suit no. then tell them, you want to do the file search. They will instruct you to make some payment. Then, will pass you the file. You can either, read or get a photocopy of the cause paper or jot down minutes of court. So, you will know why its re-opened.
