The Administrators General Act,1963
30. Grant of certificate to creditors and power to take charge of certain estates.
(1) If, in cases falling within section 29, no person claiming to be interested otherwise than as a creditor in such assets or in the due administration thereof obtains, within three months of the death of the deceased, a certificate from the Administrator-General under that section, or probate of a will or letters of administration of the estate of the deceased, the Administrator-General may administer the estate without letters of administration, in the same manner as if such letter had been granted to him.
(2) If the Administrator-General neglects or refuses to administer such estate, he shall, upon the application of a creditor, grant a certificate to him in the same manner as if he were interested in such assets otherwise than as a creditor; and such certificate shall have the same effect as certificate granted under the provisions of section 29, and shall be subject to all the provisions of this Act which are applicable to such certificate.
(3) The Administrator-General may, if he thinks fit, before granting a certificate under sub-section (2), require the creditor to give reasonable security for the due administration of the estate of the deceased. (Administrator-General not bound to grant certificate unless satisfied of claimant’s title etc.)
